Greetings Alumni and Friends of the Weinert Center,
Spring is here, and I hope you are enjoying the blossoming of new opportunities! In this newsletter, we would like to share some exciting news and highlights of our recent activities.
In early May, we celebrated the Graduating Class of 2023 from our Fellowship and WAVE programs and welcomed 13 incoming students to the Fellowship Class of 2024. These talented students have shown remarkable achievements in their courses, and we are proud to have them in our programs. We also had a productive WAVE Advisory Board meeting, where students presented their impressive pitches and ideas.
It was also our great privilege and honor to induct David Walsh into the Weinert Center Hall of Fame. The Weinert Center Hall of Fame was started in 2003 with a goal of recognizing individuals who have been both exemplary entrepreneurs and supporters of the Weinert Center. David has truly had a lifelong connection with the UW and made outstanding contributions to the entrepreneurial community.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to Dr. Ray Aldag, who served as the director of our center between 2000-2012. Ray has been a mentor, a colleague and a friend to many of us, and we wish him all the best in his well-deserved retirement after being on the UW faculty for 50 years. Please join me in thanking him for his outstanding contributions and achievements.
I invite you to read these and other stories about our students, alums, and board members.
Thank you for your support, engagement and making our mission possible!
