Alumni outreach is an important initiative of the Wharton Private Equity and Venture Capital Club and we are collaborating closely with the Wharton Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (alumni network for Wharton PE/VC professionals). We are organizing various events such as our speaker series, mentoring program and education series that target bringing together current students and alumni.
Together with the Wharton Private Equity Alumni Network, the club is organizing mentors for Wharton students. If you are willing to act as mentor, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Breakfast / Coffee Chat
The club is organizing coffee chats with local VC and PE professionals. If you would be willing to share your expertise in an informal setting during a coffee chat (either at your office or at a coffee shop) with a small group of students (3-5), please contact email@example.com.
Having Wharton alumni give lectures on case studies, educational topics, current industry trends or other topics of interest is an exciting opportunity for Wharton students to learn. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be willing to give a talk at Wharton during the school year. The club will organize all the logistics and advertise the event.
