According to Pitchbook, only 13% of Penn’s VC-backed founders are women. They raise just 6% of the VC funding.
This new alumnae club encourages more Penn Wharton women to start companies—and help them get funded. We hope to increase the number of Penn Wharton women founders and investors in the startup ecosystem. We believe that if you’re a Penn Wharton woman with a business idea, you deserve to get funding. We can’t help Wharton women without our male colleagues, so fellas, consider this your engraved invitation!
