Updates for the Western Entrepreneurship Community regarding COVID-19
As Western University transitions to a required services model, effective Thursday, March 19, our entrepreneurship coworking space (WSSB 2130) will be operating virtually with no staff physically in the office until further notice. Our staff will continue to operate off-site from 9:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m., to offer our entrepreneurial service in a virtual manner.
All workshops, events and client meetings previously booked in our coworking space through May 1, 2020, have been moved to a virtual format, postponed or cancelled. Please read below for details on how each event is being handled.
Over the next few days, we will be converting our entrepreneurial resources to an accessible virtual format. Explore topics on building your startup from the comfort of your home. Stay tuned for this announcement.
Western continues to monitor the ongoing evolving situation with COVID-19 pandemic and takes its direction and shares information from federal, provincial and local health authorities. Please visit uwo.ca/coronavirus/ for the latest updates from the university.
