Enter local startup Clio, fresh off of a $20M Series C round. They’re hosting a ‘Women, Wine and Wisdom’ networking event this Wednesday, May 7th, at Clio HQ in Burnaby, focused on bringing professional women in Vancouver together for a night of networking, collaboration, and recognition.

Bringing together professionals from all walks of life, the event will feature speakers Sarah Lubik, the Director of Technology Entrepreneurship at SFU, and Angela Baldonero, the COO of Perch.
