Venture Club

Venture Club was founded in 2010 by five entrepreneurial minded students and their professor, Jeff Shay. Initial meetings focused on developing a mission and purpose for the organization, determining what activities to engage in, and leadership structure and responsibilities.


Venture Club aims to promote and project the spirit of entrepreneurship in the Washington and Lee Community through providing a variety of educational and networking opportunities.
