Wharton Investment Network (WIN)

Wharton Investment Network
The Wharton Investment Network (WIN) is a transaction-focused organization within the Wharton Club of New York (WCNY). The Wharton Investment Network (WIN) exists to facilitate transactions between Wharton-affiliated Private Equity and late stage Venture Capital professionals and Wharton-affiliated companies seeking capital by hosting investment forums on a periodic basis. In addition, WIN maintains a data room of investment opportunities that can be accessed at any time. The goal is to provide investors with access to a pool of candidates for investment while making the funding process much more efficient and streamlined for both sides. WIN is inviting companies that are beyond the start-up phase and are in search of traditional venture capital/private equity investment and investment professionals to participate in this group.

Reports to:
The VP for Wharton Investment Resource Exchange (WIRE) as well as the AVP of WIN and other members of the WCNY Management Team.

The WIN Volunteer will assist the VP of WIRE and AVP of WIN in developing the Wharton Investment Network, organizing events, attracting investors and target companies, and maintain/develop WIN online data room of deal opportunities. The volunteer will need to be comfortable with reaching out to Private Equity firms and executives to participate in panel discussions and to encourage them to consider investing in deal opportunities.

Time Commitment:
Volunteer time commitments vary but expect to give an average of two hours per week to this effort.

All volunteers must be supporting (dues paying) members of the Wharton Club of New York. The type of person would be most suited for the position: An individual who is either in the PE & VC space presently or has strong present ties to these communities.  This person must feel comfortable reaching out to contacts in this space to participate in the WIN ecosystem. Needs to be a self-starter. We are looking for people who have the time to give to the Club.

Application Process:
Interested volunteers should complete the volunteer application and submit to Gabriela Sanchez, the Club’s Administrator at gsanchez@whartonny.com a resume clearly indicating which volunteer position is of interest and explaining your enlightened self-interest in serving the Club. Once the submission is received, the applicant will be contacted by one of the Club’s volunteers. The Club expects that each selected volunteer will treat this volunteer "job" as seriously as a professional job and recognize that it is an extension of his or her professional world.
