The Wing Kicks Off Female Founder Initiative

Women-focused coworking operator The Wing has launched The Guild, a program that supports female founders, on International Women’s Day. The program will allow 13 female business owners to partner with The Wing’s new location in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for one year.

The company will provide custom programming and mentorship for The Guild’s inaugural class throughout the year. Eventually, The Wing hopes to roll out this initiative throughout all of its markets.

Since its founding in 2016, the company has raised $117.5 million in over two years and hosted notable women such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jennifer Lopez, Hillary Clinton and more.

After coworking giant WeWork sold off its stake in The Wing, the company maintained fast growth and increased funding.

Now, the company has 12,000 members across 11 coworking spaces in New York, Washington D.C., Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles and London and has plans to expand to six more spaces by the end of 2020.

“The biggest pain point I face as a founder is isolation,” said Christina Viviani, cofounder and creative director of lingerie lifestyle brand The Great Eros. “There’s no playbook on this journey of entrepreneurship. You don’t always know if the decision you’re making is the right one. You learn from experience. With a network as dynamic as The Guild we will all be able to share our stories and benefit from our collective experiences.”
