Founder Story 📚:

Meet Wen Zhang, founder of the INNW Institute.

”I was born and raised in a remote village in China (without Internet/car), and always had a dream to see the world. After teaching myself English using a cassette machine (9 failures 4 years later), I made my American Dream come true 11 years ago. Therefore, I am passionate about helping others make their vision/dreams come true today. We [ the INNW Institute ] believe that you are one pitch away from changing the world. We started our business to support founders to articulate their vision so they dream in a bigger way and create a massive impact with their compelling pitch. Our mission is to make 1 million pitches in our lifetime. Because we believe it will be a better world when 1 million businesses are elevated, it will be a win-win-win world.”

Wen and the INNW Institute would love to connect with founders, and if she can serve anyone along the way, she would be honored to; or just make new friends. If her mission resonates, we encourage you to reach out.

We are excited to hear and share YOUR founder's story. Fill in this form to be featured.
