Wine Tasting Benefit for TechTown

August 19, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join us for a Virtual Wine Tasting

Do you want a future where anyone and everyone can launch and grow a business? So do we. That’s why TechTown launched the Startup Fund to address the unique financial barriers Black tech entrepreneurs face with a simple goal – provide equitable access to the capital it takes to start a high-growth tech business.
Please join Ned Staebler, President and CEO of TechTown Detroit, and Bonnie Graves, President of Girl Meets Grape, for a virtual happy hour benefit for the Startup Fund and raise a glass to building a more equitable economy.
Each ticket level includes three bottles of wine and artisanal cheese from Mongers’ Provisions, a Detroit-based TechTown alumni business, shipped straight to your door! There’s also a guided tour of each wine varietal from vintners who’ll help you discover their unique qualities.

Guests will receive wine graciously provided by:

  • D Wade Cellars (yes, as in Dwyane Wade!)
  • McBride Sisters Wine (the first African-American sister duo to found a wine company)
  • Maison Noir (Founded by sommelier André Hueston Mack)
A bonus gift of champagne and caviar will ship to the first 20 people who purchase at the Venture Investor level.
RSVP by August 9 to ensure wine delivery by event date.
For questions or more information, email vsitron@wayne.edu.
