About Mentoring Opportunities

Mentoring can be a critical aid to Wharton students. WGES is making seasoned, experienced members available to be of service to meet your specific needs. Our Emeritus Society represents members who are experienced in every discipline taught within the school curriculum. Contact for more information.

WGES has arranged a mentorship program with Red and Blue Ventures, a private equity firm that invest in startups from Penn and Wharton students. The program offers members of WGES the opportunity to help mentor these startup firms using expertise from their careers. The program is completely optional but is viewed as a great way for our members to stay current and relevant with what is happening today in the world of entrepreneurship.
