Wharton Impact Investing Partners (WIIP) is a student-led organization at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. We source and conduct diligence on early and expansion-stage companies with venture-grade growth potential and intentional, measurable social impact.
Through a highly selective process, new members—both MBAs and undergraduates—are chosen based on commitment, experience, and industry knowledge. We provide high quality training on the investment process, impact investing, and portfolio management.
We use our diverse backgrounds and expertise to provide value-added support to companies in WIIP portfolio. Historically, we’ve considered companies in k-12 education, higher education, energy, health and wellness, food and nutrition, environmental sustainability, and financial inclusion.
WIIP is made possible by funding from Ronald Moelis, C'78, W'78 and Kerry Moelis.
WIIP (formerly known as the Wharton Social Venture Fund) is housed under Wharton Social Impact Initiative, through which we receive institutional support and resources.
