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!
