ABOUT the PITCH COMPETITION

​Wharton Women in Business is hosting its annual Female Founder Pitch Competition featuring the most promising women-led startups in the University of Pennsylvania community. With only 11.7% of venture capital funding going to female-led startups and only 2.2% going to companies with solely female founders  , providing a platform for these rapidly-growing businesses is as important as ever.

The Female Founder Pitch Competition is an opportunity to bring together inspiring female entrepreneurs with leading investors in the industry. This event connects founders, students, alumni, and industry leaders and provides an opportunity to accelerate promising women-led ventures.

Venture applicants will be selected to compete in the pitch competition judged by successful venture capitalists.
