Congratulations to Our Class of 2020 Wunderkinds!

On July 15th, 2020, 914INC. celebrated 21 successful businesspeople, all under the age of 30, at its 10th annual Wunderkinds reception. The live virtual awards ceremony featured Westchester County Executive George Latimer and former Wunderkind Kris Ruby of Ruby Media Group as guest speakers before each Wunderkind was individually honored.

914INC. is Westchester County’s first and only business lifestyle magazine. With broad appeal, smart writing, and stunning photography and layouts, 914INC. delivers its message in print, online and in person to the county’s diverse and wide-ranging business community. From perceptive profiles of CEO’s and Board Presidents to in-depth reporting on local businesses and business trends to sneak peeks at the latest office gadgets, plus the best business tips, 914INC. is designed to inform, entertain and make office life (and, yes, even life after five) even more enjoyable.

Throughout the year, 914INC. hosts business-related events on topics often tied to recent stories featured in the magazine. Each 914INC. branded event provides a forum for members of the Westchester business community to network, discuss best practices, and share ideas in a fun, thought-provoking environment.

914INC. is a Today Media publication. Today Media is a high-quality media communications company powered by an array of successful and proven platforms. In print, online and in person, Today Media reaches about 6.5 million affluent readers and visitors with award-winning content and outstanding services.
