Veteran female entrepreneur, Ten Wilkerson, is getting ready to launch her new label, Vencer Gold Records, in her hometown of Chicago, this Friday, Aug. 11th. Taking place at The Hangar in Chicago’s Fort Knox Studios, the launch comes after a failed attempt to launch the label earlier this year at the famed SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. To which Ten said was from her, “taking her dreams too big, too fast.”
Everything ended up working out for the better for the female entrepreneur, though, as the now living in LA, but still born and raised in the Westside of Chicago, Wilkerson, will now get to launch her new label in her hometown. All while helping benefit the awareness of Mental Health in the entertainment industry, by having a silent auction and a VIP catered dinner, to go along with an open bar.
