Celebrating Women and Entrepreneurship
Five remarkable local women will headline WINnovation 2017, Walter’s third annual celebration of women and innovation, sponsored by Bank of America and The Umstead Hotel & Spa.
An evening of inspiration, education, celebration, and fellowship will bring together innovators from the worlds of jazz, fashion, real estate, the environment, and consumer products. They will share TED-style “WIN” (women in innovation) talks on the challenges and triumphs of their individual creative journeys, and the wisdom they’ve earned along the way.
WINnovation 2017 will take place at the Umstead Hotel Sept. 8 with a cocktail hour, three-course gourmet dinner with wine pairings, WIN talks, and panel discussions. A pre-cocktail startup session sponsored by Diamonds Direct will also provide an opportunity for interested attendees to network and learn from other local entrepreneurial leaders.
This event sold out in 2015 and 2016. Walter hopes to see you there this year!
Each speaker will give a 5-minute TED-talk-style “WIN” talk about her own individual entrepreneurial journey.
