Women in Entrepreneurship
The mission of Women in Entrepreneurship is to support women entrepreneurs through mentorship, opportunities, and resources.
According to UN Women Deputy Executive, Lakshmi Puri, “If women and men stood on identical footing in terms of participation in the economy through paid work and entrepreneurship, the world could see as much as 28 trillion dollars in global growth by 2025.”Although the number of women entrepreneurs grows each year, gender equality is still lacking given a historically uneven playing field. Equality can be more easily achieved if schools, businesses, government, and the community take initiative to support women in entrepreneurship. Women in Entrepreneurship at Texas A&M aims to advocate for women entrepreneurship and leadership to make an impact in the community now, and empower the women entrepreneurs of the future. This group welcomes Texas A&M students of any sex and gender who want to support women entrepreneurs.
Aggie Vanguard is a men’s organization with the mission to push men to become innovators and to lead in the creation of ideas. The organization aims to create upstanding men who are emotionally intelligent, empathetic, and self-aware. Our members want to help the needs of others while enforcing self-growth, humility, and integrity among their peers.
A group of friends who wanted to leave a lasting impact on the Aggie community founded Aggie Vanguard in 2018. It was built on four pillars: Empathy, Humility, Perseverance, and Integrity. Our pillars provide us with a strong foundation to create Emotionally Intelligent leaders by pushing our members to grow by reflecting, creating goals, and giving back. We believe that emphasizing these actions, we can be a difference in our members and community.
Lemonade Day is a combined effort by all the McFerrin Center student organizations to provide mentoring to local elementary school students in the Brazos Valley. In support of the National Lemonade Day program that encourages young children to explore entrepreneurship through lemonade stands, Texas A&M students run through the provided content. The multi-week program culminates in an annual day where lemonade stands fill the Bryan/College Station community.
Lemonade Day 2019 will be Saturday May 4th. Learn More about Lemonade Day BCS.
