Flywheel Investment Conference

April 19 @ 9:00 am - 8:00 pm

At the Flywheel Investment Conference, entrepreneurs, investors, and community members come together to cultivate momentum for growing companies. The conference is a full-day event held in downtown Wenatchee, Washington, and includes educational seminars, speaker panels, an investment competition, and resources from professional service providers.

During the conference, Howard Wright, chairman and founder of Seattle Hospitality Group, and Diane Fraiman, partner at Voyager Capital, will be featured in an exclusive “fireside chat.” These leaders from their respective fields will engage in a dynamic conversation on how communities in the Pacific Northwest have driven community investment and engagement to support growing companies. In addition to hearing from Mr. Wright and Ms. Fraiman, attendees will have the chance to hear and connect with leaders in entrepreneurship and technology from across the PNW.

Another highlight of the conference is the company competition, where 6-8 Washington companies will pitch and compete for a $100k investment award. The public is invited to attend this full-day event to learn, connect, and get inspired.

The Flywheel Investment Conference is directed by GWATA and made possible through the generosity of sponsors. Presenting sponsors for the 2018 conference are Moss Adams, Ogden Murphy Wallace, Confluence Health, and Microsoft.
