Greetings Alumni and Friends of the Weinert Center,
We hope your 2022 is off to a great start. The campus activities are back into the swing of things with all of the energy that comes from having the students back on campus.
In this newsletter, we will be sharing some information on the events that are helping our current UW students build teams, develop careers, and be inspired by the many paths an entrepreneur can take in their journey. We also have a story on how the Business & Entrepreneurship Clinic has helped local entrepreneurs launch and grow their animated education series.
We conclude with profiles of our newest advisory board member, Kristen Forecki, and a recent alum, Selva Jagannathan. Both of them are stellar examples of the entrepreneurial mindset that is found in so many Badger alumni who are doing a variety of interesting things in the world.
Enjoy the newsletter!
