An information hub for local professionals under 40.

About Us

WHO WE ARE – It’s simple – we’re a group of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County professionals under 40. If that describes you, you’re already one of us.

WHO WE AREN’T – We aren’t a secret society, an anonymous support group or a cult. There are no dues to pay, no hazing rituals to endure and you never have to sell anything door-to-door. We have no hidden agenda, require no blood oath and you don’t have to announce your weight at every meeting (although you can if you like). Yes, we are part of the Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce, but you don’t have to be a Chamber member to be part of Winston<40.

OUR GOAL – That’s simple, too – we want to help create and cultivate the next generation of community and business leaders in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. That sounds pretty lofty and dry, but how we do it isn’t. We accomplish our goal by offering you unique opportunities in the areas of community engagement, professional development and social activities that allow you to connect with your peers in the community. This produces partnerships, friendships and alliances that can help you get ahead and make your mark, and help our city and community grow.

HOW WE’RE DIFFERENT – We’re not strictly a social organization, though we have a social side. And we’re not strictly a service organization, though service is some of what we do. Because we’re part of the Chamber, Winston<40 is focused primarily on creating well-rounded business leaders. We do this by providing opportunities for you to enhance your professional abilities and broaden your network in the local business community.
