ABOUT the PITCH COMPETITION
Wharton Women in Business is hosting its annual Penn Women Pitch Competition featuring the most promising women-led startups in the University of Pennsylvania community. With only 15.9% of venture capital funding going to women co-founded startups and only 2.0% going to companies with solely women founders , providing a platform for these rapidly-growing businesses is as important as ever.
The Penn Women Pitch Competition is an opportunity to bring together inspiring women 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.
Our founders and finalists will be judged by successful VCs.
