WEC25 Expo

Description

One of the best assets Wharton and the surrounding community has to offer is its vast network of entrepreneurs—both established as well as the ones just starting off. This year, WEC'09 is proud to present the Entrepreneur Exposition giving entrepreneurs a chance to showcase their team and product to the participants.

The WEC25 Expo is a unique opportunity to present your entrepreneurial venture to a vast network of VCs and entrepreneurs.

The WEC25 Expo will be composed of 25 of the most promising startups, which will each be given their own table to exhibit their business all day alongside the annual Wharton Entrepreneurship Conference. The WEC25 companies will gain incredible exposure to our 500+ guests, including leading venture capital investors, MBA students from The Wharton School and other Penn Graduate students (e.g., Engineering and Medicine), and industry professionals from the greater Philadelphia entrepreneurship ecosystem.
