Tickets are required to attend NewCo.

Session Title: Bouqs— The Most Genuine Flower Experience

The experience of ordering flowers online is ripe for disruption. Big players have dominated the space for years, yet the customer experience is dismal at best with deceptive pricing and flowers that don’t look like what was ordered. Bouqs.com has changed the game for this industry with flat rate pricing and flowers that are shipped directly from sustainable, eco-friendly farms and local, artisan florists. This new model includes a proprietary supply chain that streamlines the process, allowing for low prices and the best experience possible. Enjoy a tour of Bouqs’ space, check out video of the farms where the flowers are grown, and maybe even take home a complimentary bouquet.

Special Message to Attendees from Host Company:

We are located close to the corner of Washington and Lincoln. Street parking is available on Washington Blvd and our side streets, Yale Ave and Stanford Ave. Parking is limited in our area, so grabbing an Uber or Lyft is highly recommended. Please avoid parking in the lots of our neighbors, Cafe Buna and Akbar Cuisine, as you may get towed.

Four years later, Club W is a 200,000-case-per-year producer and one of the fastest-growing wine companies in the world, making over 130 small-lot wines each year under their new winery name, WINC. Join CEO Xander Oxman for a discussion on their mission to revolutionize the grape-to-glass wine industry. You'll get an inside look at the recent 2015 harvest, and of course, you'll taste some wine.
