WWBIC 2021 Annual Celebration

The Next Vintage | Cultivating a Legacy

WWBIC is very pleased to invite you to join us this year for WWBIC’s annual showcase. This year we are modifying the format from a luncheon to an afternoon happy hour.

We are proceeding optimistically as we plan to host our event in person with an option to join us virtually. WWBIC’s commitment to small business remains steadfast. We invite you to join us as we look to the future and continue to create new ways of garnering support and matching resources with the needs of Wisconsin’s entrepreneurial community.

This year our celebration embraces the theme: The Next Vintage | Cultivating a Legacy. Our program will honor the roots of our past work, but also look toward the future with intention – cultivating our work, spaces, and places into our shared legacy full of hope. To embrace our nod to the future, we welcome Cristina Torres, Marimar Estates Director of Sales and Marketing, as our keynote speaker.
