We acknowledge that we live and work on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the appointment of Dr. Wayne Chang as Lecturer at the Conrad Business, Entrepreneurship and Technology Centre. We are thrilled to bring Wayne on board full-time.
Wayne is well-known in the Waterloo entrepreneurial ecosystem; he is a frequent guest lecturer, judge, and mentor to young entrepreneurs at the University of Waterloo (with involvement in VeloCity, Greenhouse, and the Nicol competition). Wayne is a Mentor Advisor at The Next 36 – Canada’s National Entrepreneurial Leadership Initiative program for undergraduate student start-ups in digital and mobile media. And prior to his career in Waterloo, Wayne worked for seven years in the high-tech sector of Silicon Valley.
“[Wayne's] commitment to entrepreneurship, passion for early-stage ventures, and his ability to engage undergraduate students makes him a particularly valuable member of the Conrad team as we expand our undergraduate programing.” Dr. Doug Sparkes, Interim Director, Conrad Centre
In addition to his work with E Co-op and BET 300, Wayne will play an integral role in the development and launch of Waterloo's new undergraduate entrepreneurship option.
From everyone here at Conrad, we are very glad to be working with Wayne in a full-time capacity!
