AFFILIATE NETWORK

Seasoned entrepreneurs & executives make up WIN’s Affiliate Network.  This diverse group provides WIN & its portfolio companies with expertise across all stages of a Company’s life cycle.  Although all Affiliates typically have the opportunity to invest in nearly all companies we back, each Affiliate is committed to providing on-demand mentorship to WIN portfolio companies upon the Company’s request.  Being an Affiliate is much more than providing capital.
