The Wells Fargo partnership with WPO's Platinum Program focuses on stimulating business opportunities to drive successful, second-stage businesses to the next level of profitability. WPO has seven Platinum Groups, six in North America and one in South Africa.

The Summit will offer a highly-interactive experience, using case studies and a group simulation experience led by Harvard Business School Professor Dr. David Ager. Participants will also meet one-on-one with supplier diversity representatives in matchmaker sessions. These are designed to acquaint Platinum Group members with procurement professionals, to increase access to future contracting opportunities.

The keynote speaker at the Platinum Summit will be Sarah House, Director and Senior Economist with Wells Fargo Securities, who covers the U.S. macro economy, including the labor market, inflation trends, and business investment.
