The Wing Has $118 Million in Funding, Superfans Like Meryl Streep, and Plenty of Skeptics. It’s Just Getting Started
Audrey Gelman has made the Wing’s women-focused shared office spaces into a buzzy club of feminine empowerment built on inclusivity–and, perhaps, exclusivity. Change can be messy. The Wing expects to have 15,000 members by the end of this year–a nice number, but modest considering the hype. What’s more telling: The Wing has nearly 500,000 followers across social media, few of whom live in cities with Wing locations. These are fans. Of an office. In a city where they don’t live. Or, more accurately, they are acolytes of what the Wing has come to represent.
The Wing’s cofounder just became the first visibly pregnant CEO featured on a business magazine cover
Audrey Gelman – and her baby bump – is showing the world that women don’t need to sacrifice their careers for motherhood. Gelman, 32, the CEO and cofounder of the women-focused coworking space The Wing, just became the first visibly pregnant CEO to appear on the cover of a business magazine. The Inc. magazine issue featuring Gelman will hit newsstands in October.

SAN ANTONIO — The Stumberg Venture Competition is entrepreneurship at it’s finest. It’s like the show “Shark Tank” but without the venture capitalists getting a piece of the business.
- Winner gets $25,000
- This is the 5th year of the competition
It started back in January when students applied for the competition. On Wednesday, a winner received a grand prize of $25,000 to launch their business.
This is the 5th year that Trinity University has teamed with the Stumberg family to hold the event, but the entrepreneurial program has been a staple for longer than that.
