Our Investment Focus

The Wharton Alumni Angel Network (WAAN) provides a forum to connect Penn and Wharton alumni accredited investors with entrepreneurs who are seeking angel-stage funding. Our mission is to facilitate this connection between startups and WAAN angel members, not to provide any recommendations on investment or to guide an investment process.


While companies with a Penn or Wharton affiliation (via founders, senior leadership or advisors) will be featured, all companies interested in connecting with our group of experienced investors are encouraged to apply.
