Students love "WECRE8"

"Initiative."

“WECRE8 gave me a solid foundation for my knowledge in entrepreneurship and how starting a real nonprofit is like. I came to WECRE8 thinking that nonprofit organizations do not need to think about money, but I am really glad that the hands-on experience helped me realize that running a nonprofit is no different from running a business.”

Students love Gain and Learn

"Knowledge."

“I learned that creating a startup venture involves cycles of ups and downs. A good idea is not enough. Pitching your ideas to your team, mentor, judges is a very demanding task. I have improved so much in communication, time management and problem-solving. WECRE8 gave us the platform to learn essential knowledge and to apply the knowledge in real life.”
