Wharton’s Lippincott Librarian Phebe Dickson will help you use the amazing resources available at this major research institution to do customer, industry, or any other kind of research. Databases that cost thousands of dollars to access once you graduate are free while you’re a student, and Phebe knows how to use them all.

Taylor Durham, Venture Lab’s Associate Director of Communications & Wharton Communications Program Lecturer, will help you hone your pitch, write your company description, create taglines, craft a marketing plan, and more

It was an awesome opportunity to reconnect, to give back a little, and honestly, I’m personally motivated by meeting with these students.
