About Merlin Melles
Both my parents were teachers and I was brought up with a broad outlook on life plus a wide range of interests. I started a quest for knowledge in the broadest sense of the word. And I believe the best way to acquire knowledge is through meeting people. I turned meeting people and learning from them into an art form. That’s why I started the Founders Carbon Network (fCN), Carbon Network (CN) and Pearlcard.
Founders Carbon Network (fCN)
Connecting people is my passion, from which Founders Carbon Network (fCN) originated. This close-knit group of business relations form an exclusive high-end network where members favour each others business. Lots of business is generated worldwide. Both offline and online I connect you with fellow fCN members. As a member of fCN, you are part of a unique and valuable business network. These renowned entrepreneurs are open to each other’s services and products. In addition, members share knowledge and information during more than 35 events per year. Every year, several trade missions take place in Europe, Asia, North and South America, the Middle East and Africa where fCN offices are also represented.
Carbon Network (CN)
Carbon Network is a business network for enterprising managers, executives and self-employed professionals. All branches are represented within CN and we focus on both personal and professional development. We organize events such as training courses, workshops and knowledge tables. As a member you can also make use of all the Pearlcard services and unlimited online NCOI courses.
