Be the Change

Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” At Venture Café Winston-Salem, we are in the business of change: business-starting, innovator-connecting, community-expanding change. Change is infectious, but it ain’t free. Would you give your change (or bills) to help us be the change? Whatever you give, Gandhi would approve.

Join us for the second installment of a fan favorite.. Human Library this Thursday 5-8:30PM.

This is a project where real people volunteer as "books" to share their experiences with "readers" (attendees) to create a place where difficult questions are expected, appreciated, and answered. The volunteers have faced prejudice based on different aspects of their lives including religion, ethnicity, gender/sexuality, health issues, social status, lifestyle choices, disability, occupation, being victims and ideology.

With a mission to broaden, connect, and support our Piedmont Triad innovation community, we look back at 2019 thankful for the opportunity to build, connect, learn, and grow with all of you. Have a look at our Impact Report to see what we've accomplished together over the last year and where we're excited to go in the future!

Impact Report Highlight: E.A. Green of Opin Media Lab || Growing up, E.A. Green dreamed of being an inventor, a risk-taker, a creative problem-solver -- but it wasn’t until he moved to Winston-Salem that he was able to see those dreams become a reality as an entrepreneur. Now the founder and CEO of Opin Media Lab, an in-house production studio in downtown Winston-Salem, Green shares how connecting at Venture Cafe has elevated his business.

Due to snow and hazardous road conditions after sunset, our Thursday Gathering has been cancelled tonight. Keep an eye out for rescheduled programs!

Part of the magic Thursday Gatherings is that they don't just end at 8PM. As we welcome new visitors, new ideas, and new expereinces each week, we co-create a beautifully diverse and imaginative community (locally and globally!) that is always growing bigger, bolder and stronger.

Take a look at the video to see how far we've come since our story began here in Winston Salem in 2017, and stay tuned for more from our 2019 Impact Report (coming soon)!
