The Venture Finals is the culminating event of the Wharton Business Plan Competition. It is the signature opportunity for the Wharton Business Plan Competition’s Great Eight Finalist teams to present their ventures to distinguished judges who will award prizes. The Venture Finals is a great event for the entrepreneurial community, bringing students together with angel investors, venture capitalists, Penn/Wharton alumni, entrepreneurs, and others from the entrepreneurial business community. Following the formal presentations, there is an Elevator Pitch Competition. While the judges deliberate, each Finalist team delivers a short Elevator Pitch on their venture. Based on these pitches, the audience selects the winner of the Michelson People’s Choice Award.
