Venwise in 2016
This year we continue to be a focused group. Our stated mission is to become a valuable resource for our member companies, and this year we have plans to continue our pursuit of becoming that resource for current and new members. We currently offer 5 services to our membership, of which 3 are available to anyone on member company teams. We are constantly looking for ways to improve on the current offering, and we have a few more services up our sleeves that we'll begin to test this year. 

To kick of the year we're excited to host our first summit outside of NYC. We've just announced an AWS Roadmap Summit in Boston. This is the 4th time we've partnered with AWS to open up the roadmap beyond what is currently available to the market. AWS are great partners for us and Venwise tech leaders always get a ton from these summits.

2016 is shaping up to be an extremely productive year where our diverse community of  talented members and leaders continues to grow and share their lessons learned from building their companies. 
Thank you,
