Wharton Women in PE & VC Initiative
The Wharton Women in PE & VC Initiative connects 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 other women. 
•    Include women and men in the Wharton/UPenn investor community. 
•    Ensure confidentiality and create trust/intimacy. 
•    Facilitate the exchange of ideas across generations. 


If you are a Wharton or UPenn alum currently investing LP, GP or VC funds and are interested in learning about upcoming events, or if you are interested in sponsoring the Wharton Women in PE & VC Initiative please email jsimons@wpevc.org.
