Take this opportunity to work with Wharton and Penn students and apply to become a client with the WISE Program. Student fellows in the WISE Program support clients with research, consulting, and strategy projects.

If your application is selected, student fellows across Wharton and Penn will work with you on projects that scale real-world social impact. The client application is open to all—impact investors, entrepreneurs, or those who work at social enterprises. We review all project proposals, but we are especially excited about project opportunities in Philadelphia.

Former clients have included Kate Spade, Hanover Direct, Kimbal Musk, the Economy League, FastFWD, iNTENT Ventures, First Book, and more.

“Wharton Social Impact Initiative did a tremendous job of hiring fellows and managing the project. The Economy League worked with WSII on a very niche project that required a balance of an in-depth understanding of procurement practices combined with an ability to engage local small business owners. [The Fellows] were a truly professional consulting team, and the final deliverable was immediately useful in our daily work. Great job!” -Mariya Khandros, Director of Shared Solutions at the Economy League of Greater Philadelphia.
