55th Annual Leadership Dinner Honors Ilana Weinstein

Join us in recognizing Ilana Weinstein (MBA ‘95), who was presented with the Club’s 2024 Entrepreneurship Award at our 55th Annual Leadership Dinner on May 16th.

Weinstein is the founder and CEO of The IDW Group LLC, a New York City based search firm that is a leading boutique for hedge fund managers, asset managers, private equity firms, and family offices in search of top investment talent. The Wall Street Journal called her “one of the most powerful women in hedge funds.” Her company was even the subject of a Harvard Business School case study in honor of its 20th Anniversary. 

“In receiving this award I thought about what entrepreneurship means. I think the definition is broader than starting a company or a business,” stated Weinstein. “It cuts to the quick of who we are as individuals, what we stand for, and having the guts to chart our own course in life, even if that’s uncomfortable.”

It was our honor to recognize Ilana for her incredible achievements. Special thanks to Steven A. Cohen, Chairman & CEO of Point72 and Owner, NY Mets, for his fantastic introduction.
