Our Committees

WUEC consists of six committees for members to get involved in any way they like

Events

The Events Committee plans all of WUEC events including Speaker Series, Workshops, Tech Treks, and Pitch Competitions. Throughout the semester, the committee brainstorms event ideas, hosts speakers, collaborates with other clubs on campus, and lead WUEC’s events from start to finish.

Finance and Sponsorship

The Finance Committee manages the club’s budget by exploring creative funding. Members gain exposure to connecting with potential sponsors, managing the club’s accounts, and developing relationships with WUEC partners.

Internal Affairs

The Internal Affairs Committee handles logistical aspects of the club by securing spaces for weekly board meetings, ambassador meetings, and speaker events. They also design and maintain WUEC presence on channels like CampusGroups. They are also responsible for managing WUEC's website and listserv mailing list. Members share a passion for web/graphic design, but do not need to have previous coding experience.

Marketing

The Marketing Committee designs club logos, apparel, event posters, and online media. Members advertise upcoming events, and maintain the clubs internet presence through weekly ListServ emails and updates on the Facebook page.

Outreach

The Outreach Committee helps WUEC connect with external groups and personnel, such as future speakers and sponsors. It also helps entrepreneurs with traction on their ventures navigate the University's abundant resources for founders. In addition to these initiatives, the Outreach committee is pursuing a long-term project to create a platform for Penn founders to meet co-founders and future employees. Prospective members should be eager to network, cold-email, and innovate!

Ambassadors Program

The Ambassadors Program is a semester-long experiential program that introduces new members to the early stages of entrepreneurship by developing a venture. 

Participants focus on need-finding and hypothesis testing within their small founding teams, working up to pitch at our winter pitch competition. Each cohort becomes part of a tight-knit community of like-minded peers that they can carry with them throughout their time at Penn.
