Entrepreneurship On-campus - Fall 2020

Updated September 14, 2020 

To all members of the Western Entrepreneurship community,

We are excited to welcome you back this fall. Whether you’re looking to develop an idea, grow your business, or expand your knowledge, we’re here to help with a suite of virtual and in-person services designed to support your entrepreneurial journey. 

Along with Western University, we continue to monitor the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic situation and take direction from federal, provincial and local health authorities.

Western's main website https://uwo.ca/coronavirus remains the central source for up-to-date information from the University. Please follow this as your primary source of information.

To address unique circumstances specifically applicable to our Western Entrepreneurship community, please see the additional information below. This information will be updated when new information is available.
