From Idea to Implementation
VIP is an educational incubator program managed by Wharton Entrepreneurship which assists University of Pennsylvania students as they build businesses.
Under the program's guidance, students develop their ventures through the real-world experience of executing the initial stages of their ventures. While in VIP students become part of an entrepreneurial community that provides office space, educational programming, professional advising and a support system of fellow VIP members who form a vibrant entrepreneurial student community on campus.
Wharton Entrepreneurship and the Venture Initiation Program are grateful to our contributors who believe in the need to inspire and educate young entrepreneurs.
