Science Center Networking Event

Earlier this evening, the Science Center hosted a Wharton VIP networking event.

Please join Wharton Entrepreneurial Programs and the University City Science Center in a Networking Event with students from the Wharton Venture Initiation Program on Wednesday, March 25 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM at the University City Science Center. Join us for refreshments and mix with Wharton/Penn’s best and brightest student entrepreneurs along with some of the Philadelphia region’s leading business professionals including numerous alums.

We were given the honor of being invited to exhibit our company along with five other startup ventures. Consequently, Ryan Goldstein, President/CEO, presented an overview of ChronoWake to the 100+ attendees of this event, including renowned venture capital, angel, legal, and financial service professionals. We have gathered significant additional interest in our venture, plus several offers of resources and support.

We greatly appreciate the effort and resources of Wharton Entrepreneurial Programs and the Science Center to put together this excellent event.
