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 exchange of ideas across generations.
