The afternoon of Tuesday, September 5 was a fun one for the Weinert Center for Entrepreneurship. Along with the Management and Human Resources Department, the Weinert Center hosted its annual Fall Kickoff Event. Guests enjoyed food, drink, and conversation at Wingra Boats, along the shoreline of beautiful Lake Wingra in Madison.
Wingra Boats is owned by Tyler Leeper, an alumnus of the Weinert Center. Along with Tyler, the event was well attended with faculty, staff, students, board members and alumni. As one might expect of an event like this, the attendees ranged from a variety of backgrounds and industries. It was a great opportunity to catch up with old friends, classmates, and colleagues, and to make new connections.
Even when the rain started, nobody wanted to leave. Instead, all of the attendees huddled under the shelters and continued the fun. As the event wrapped up, the guests were treated with a beautiful double rainbow in the sky. What a great way to kick off the year!
