Founder and venture capitalist Randy Haykin first began experimenting in winemaking as a leisurely pursuit. He was always intrigued by the winemaking process: it demanded the same level of creative problem solving, dedication, attention to detail, instinct and risk-taking as any successful enterprise.
And while serving as a mentor to budding social entrepreneurs through the Gratitude Network, Randy saw the potential these social visionaries had in making a long-lasting difference in communities. It’s what drove him to turn his winemaking hobby into a business that funds the most effective social ventures around the world.
Blending Wine & Social Entrepreneurs
Entrepreneur Wines captures the creative and enterprising spirit of both winemakers and social entrepreneurs alike. After all, creating a fine wine takes the same dedication as creating a remarkable social venture: a combination of the right vision, product expertise and a talented team to make an extraordinary difference.
