The Wood Enterprise Institute (WEI) is a student-run, faculty-supported organization at Virginia Tech, in Blacksburg, Virginia. WEI was created in 2007 and has since grown in recognition as a premier learning venue for creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship, and business leadership. Each year students plan their own entrepreneurial venture through a project that helps support Virginia Tech’s learning mission. Through this experience, students learn how to organize, manage, and improve the WEI business in the most sustainable manner.

The Wood Enterprise Institute
This year our product is going on tour around Blacksburg, VA in order to gain exposure and awareness. A 314 year old oak tree was generously donated to the Wood Enterprise Institute from the president's grove which this year's team is using to create a table that displays the historical significance of Virginia Tech. More information regarding this can be found under the "Our Project" tab as well as under "Our Progress". Below you can find a schedule of when and where our table will be on display. If a place is not specified on the calendar then the table is on display in Cheatham Hall on West Campus Dr. at Virginia Tech.
