Western Venture Association
What is the WVA?
Launched in 2014, WVA’s team gauged the level of interest in venture capital and private equity among UWO students through educational speakers and interactive workshops. Since inception, the WVA has increased its member base by over 400% and now is organized by a team of 25 executives. WVA has expanded the WVA Explore event series and developed the flagship WVA Open conference.
The 2017-2018 year is focused on bridging gaps between students, entrepreneurship, and sources of funding in VC and PE. The WVA’s mandate is to provide its members with opportunities in private equity and venture capital, enabling them to understand the startup space and establish their own ventures.
