The Wharton Alumnae Founders & Funders Association is a new global affinity club. Its mission is to increase the number of Wharton women founders, and the number of Wharton women who get funded. According to Pitchbook, only 13% of Penn's VC-backed founders are women. They raise just 6% of the VC funding. We organize educational events (recordings of which are available online) and connect alumnae to investors and other funders. We need mentors from all disciplines from the alumni community! To become a mentor, or stay in the loop with our events, visit www.hellowaffa.org
We'll be hosting an event very soon in the So Cal region. Thanks for your interest!
