Westye Egeberg (1770 – 1830) was a Danish-Norwegian businessperson.

He immigrated to Norway in 1786. In 1800 he founded the timber trade company Westye Egeberg & Co in Christiania, which became an important company and was passed on through generations. He married Anna Sophie Muus (1775–1862) and was the father of Westye Martinus Egeberg, physician Christian Egeberg, composer Fredrikke Egeberg and Peder Cappelen Egeberg who inherited the company. The company was then passed down to the latter's children Ferdinand Julian Egeberg and Einar Westye Egeberg, and Westye Egeberg was also a grandfather of physician Theodor Christian Egeberg.[1][2][3]
