Western Retail Services Wholesale Partnership
We have a formal partnership with Western Retail Services (WRS) to further assist our startups interested in product wholesale. The WRS manages a number of retail locations on campus including The Book Store at Western and the Campus Computer Store. Pre-vetted businesses may have the opportunity of meeting with the WRS purchasing managers and pitching their products for wholesale.
This is a year-round opportunity. You must be actively working with one of our Business Advisors to receive a referral into WRS.
Each year during Global Entrepreneurship Week, we host the Startup Showcase to encourage connections between innovative Western-founded companies and Western students. This tradeshow-style event allows students to connect with Western entrepreneurs and gain crucial insights into entrepreneurship; while also providing companies with brand awareness and lead generation.
Should you wish to join this opportunity, please complete our application below by October 1, 2021. Please note: Due to continued COVID-19 restrictions this event may be postponed or offered in a virtual format. Thank you all for your support and understanding.
