ABOUT THE WLIN

The Women’s Luxury Investment Network (WLIN) is a private club for women who seek to invest in the luxury business – for seed and early stage luxury organizations. These opportunities typically come with a chance to influence and guide the organization.

That is why we seek women with knowledge and experience in the luxury business – because they are in a position to contribute more than just funds … thereby helping their own investments succeed. 
 
The WLIN offers access to these opportunities through the Women’s Luxury Guild, a highly respected forum for women (only) with backgrounds in the luxury sector. The Network also provides optional education developed specifically to support the novice investor who is a member of the Guild.

FORUM TIERS

WLIN offers tiers of investment levels, so that we offer opportunities that fall only within the comfort level of each individual investor. At every level, we look for situations that allow the investor to apply her own knowledge of the luxury market to improving the likelihood of her investment’s return.

  • Third tier investments: $50K-100K

  • Second tier investments: 200K-500K

  • First tier investments: $500K-1 million
