Women in Private Equity & Venture Capital Initiative

 
 

 
The Wharton Women in PE & VC Initiative:
 
Mission:
The Wharton Women in PE & VC Initiative is designed to connect a uniquely powerful group of Wharton and UPenn alumnae investing private equity and venture capital by creating a confidential peer environment to encourage open discussion, guidance, networking and best practice sharing. 

We believe that by helping senior PE & VC alumnae achieve greater success as investors today we can pave the way for future alumnae to be better prepared and represented at all levels of PE & VC investing.

Critical Elements of the Network:
•    Empower, not critique, other women.
•    Include women, do not exclude men.
•    Ensure confidentiality and create trust / intimacy
•    Facilitate exchange of ideas across generations
•    Bring one need and give one lead to the group in the spirit of supporting one another.
