MBA Venture Fellows WG20

Venture Fellows

Wharton Leadership Ventures invites you to apply to become a Venture Fellow

Serving as a Venture Fellow is an incredibly rewarding experience with the opportunity to further develop as a leader and facilitate the leadership development of venture participants.

Venture Fellow Applications Will Open for WG21 Candidates in February 2020 and close on March 19, 2020.

WG21 Venture Fellow Recruitment & Onboarding Timetable:
  • Recruitment schedule will be released December 2019.

We encourage you to talk with any Venture Fellow, Jules Roy, (Associate Director), or Christine Fisher (Program Manager).

Prior participation in a Wharton Leadership Venture is not necessary.  In other words, if you haven’t participated in a venture you should still apply to be a Venture Fellow.

The Role of a VF

Venture Fellows are carefully selected and trained 2nd-year leaders who possess the following competencies: Leadership Character, Diplomacy, Emotional Intelligence, Adaptability and Resilience, and Effective Communication.  Each year, approximately 28 rising 2Y students are selected to serve as Venture Fellows. From within that group, 2 VFs are selected as Venture Fellow Coordinators.

Venture Fellows are responsible for assisting with Venture marketing efforts, conducting pre-trip information sessions and activities, serving as a coach and facilitator during ventures, and collecting information after the ventures to ensure continuous improvement of the program.
