The Weaver Team could not be more proud of the young emerging leaders who presented their 1000# Project outcomes recently before hundreds of registrants at the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem and Convergence Conference in Peoria.
The 1000# Project Initiative was created by The Weaver Team about a year ago with the purpose of challenging young diverse groups of tomorrow's leaders to step up and solve community problems using a team approach.
It was amazing to see them review their project outcomes flawlessly at this event.
Congratulations to the team leaders, their team members, and all who support their projects.

Thank you all for the great teamwork and collaboration!
We would also like to thank Bill McDowell, Executive Director of the Turner School of Entrepreneurship and Innovation for this very successful and well-attended event!
