WHat we do

Peer Mentorship

Wiress members know the assignment: grab each-other and push to the front of the concert! Everyone in the Wiress is known to be of the most helpful and willing to provide support & opportunities amongst each-other.  

Fireside Chats

The Wiress is a place for authenticity and "keepin' it real." Our chats with incredible founders, VCs, thought-leaders, and just overall innovative baddies is our bread and butter.

Meaningful Connections

It can get lonely out there. Lots of information. Lots of speed. Lots of people. Our community is built on introductions and getting that we're trying to get it done together. We run an Intros.ai in order for you to at least get to know a few friendly faces in the same place where you are: building & breaking it.
