Where Social Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Meet

The Wharton Alumni Business Plan Competition

January 4th, 2010 · 4 Comments · Personal, VC, nextNY, tech

I just wanted to make a quick plug for a project I’ve been working on for the past couple of months–namely, the Wharton Alumni Business Plan Competition for 2010, an initiative sponsored by the Wharton Club of New York. I’m currently serving as the chair for media and marketing and have been working on getting things in order so we can get the word out through Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.

As of yesterday, we officially launched the social media portion of our marketing campaign, and we’re looking to get some great submissions for review by our judges. If you’re working on an early-stage venture (no VC funding, and no more than $100k in angel funding) and have at least one graduated Wharton alum on your team, then submit your application today!

We have some top-of-the-line judges lined up, like Jeff Fluhr (Wh ’96), founder of StubHub.com, and look forward to reviewing your top-notch business plan submissions as well. If you have any questions, please contact me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!

To find out more please join our Facebook group, follow us on Twitter, and visit the Wharton Alumni BPC homepage.

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

    Companies – whether startup or long-established – would do well to send some people to attend events like this. Aside from picking up some tips for themselves, this is a great place to find some of the next greatest business minds.
