Support WEI

The Warrior Entrepreneurship & Innovation Program’s (WEI) vision is to create, empower, nurture, and deploy into the Central Valley economy, agents of a culture of entrepreneurship and innovation that will help to redefine the local economy, with Stanislaus State as the hub of this dynamic activity. WEI is funded by donations from generous donors and sustained by hours of invested time and energy. Contributions will help ensure students are provided an environment to develop skills necessary for innovative participation in local and global economies.

Entrepreneurship & Innovation Studio

Something is happening in the Central Valley, and it’s been happening for some time. Enterprise. Entrepreneurship. Innovation. At the E&I Studio, you will hear stories as told by the people who built something. Stories of inspired leadership, inspiration and imagination called to action. Through intimate conversations, the people who make our region the special place it is will share their lived experiences and moments of brilliance. Their stories will challenge, inspire, and move you beyond words. It’s the past, present and future of a region, of a community, told by the people who pursued their passions and built something extraordinary. Co-produced by the Warrior Entrepreneurship and Innovation program and the Office of Strategic Communications and Marketing at Stanislaus State. The E&I Studio is edited and recorded in the KCSS studios at the Turlock campus. The views expressed by guests on this podcast are not necessarily those of the University.
