Entrepreneurship & Venture Capital Club (EVCC)

Welcome to the EVCC

Welcome to the Entrepreneurship & Venture Capital Club (EVCC) at the UW Foster School of Business.

Our mission is to inform, inspire, and empower entrepreneurial Foster students and connect them to resources in the Seattle start-up and VC communities — and beyond. 

The EVCC is the gateway between the Foster MBA program, the Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship, and the Seattle start-up and VC community. We also aim to increase awareness of Foster within the hiring community, ensuring that companies know to look for the best and brightest at UW.
