the vantage point
The Vantage Point is a modern, tech-forward physical space with a strong entrepreneurial culture and easy access to thought leaders in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia. The renovated retail space in the University Place student housing complex will hold space for business building, co-working and a “live experiential classroom” for students to work with startups. It is also meant to build upon WVU’s role as an R1 research institution while complementing the other 14 business support entities on campus.
