WETATi Center for Creative Thinking, Leadership & Entrepreneurship and our partnering sponsors invite you to the WETATi 2017 Entrepreneurship Convention, Anne Reese Carswell Scholarship & Awards GALA.  Our theme this year is "ENTREPRENEURSHIP COMPETITION WINNER’S SHOWCASE: Creating ECONOMIC EDUCATION & EMPOWERMENT through ENTREPRENEURSHIP” 

“You cannot ASPIRE for something that has not been introduced into your consciousness, naturally or supernaturally”- says Ambassador Dr. Margaret Dureke, as she categorically stated that most minorities talk more about getting a job than creating a job. This is mostly because that is what has been introduced into our consciousness for generations. Therefore, we must change that narrative by changing the conversation and taking action to shift from job searchers' consciousness and mentality to job creators’ consciousness through entrepreneurship embrace." At the WETATi 2017 convention and Gala this year, we will bring together some of the business moguls, businesses, entrepreneurs, students, individuals, and community leaders to expand and illuminate why this must change while seizing the opportunity to award the winners of this year's entrepreneurship competition."

During the 2017 WETATi convention, the aspiring entrepreneurs' contestants are given opportunity to pitch their business idea to the general public, potential investors and judges.  AT the Gala, WETATi will provide 10 winners with a business grant/award up to the amount of $7,500.00, a minimum of $1,500.00; and the winners will receive Business Development Training from Prince George’s Community College (PGCC) Center for Entrepreneurial Development (CED).  WETATi will award the winners on April 22, 2017 at the Colony Ballroom, Adele H. Stamp Student Union University of Maryland College Park.  

WETATi is a non-profit community based empowerment network organization that empowers the Next Generation, women, men, and young boys and girls to achieve the impossible. WETATi Center 4 Creative Thinking, Leadership and Entrepreneurship located at the University of Maryland, College Park, MD, provide entrepreneurship education, equip and empower the next generation and millennials toward creating and promoting their own opportunities and financial freedom through entrepreneurship.  WETATi leverage public and private resources through collaboration with partners such as Prince George’s Community College Center for Entrepreneurial Development; Prince George’s Economic Development Corporation; Walmart, and Washington Suburban Sanitary commission (WSSC) in an effort to promote entrepreneurship and to provide entrepreneurial development services.  Additionally, the management of this organization has a track record of developing skills of women, men, and young boys and girls and has a history of fielding aspiring entrepreneurs who have enjoyed success at the highest level throughout our community.
