Join us for a “Tale of Two Founders” – featuring Vivian Chen W11 (Heyo, Rise) and Debbie Dickinson W91 (Thermaband)

Don’t miss this very special Sunday Tea!

We’ll be joined by two fabulous Alumnae – Vivian Chen W11 Founder of HEYO and RISE (at left), along with Debbie Dickinson W91, Co-Founder of Thermaband (on the right, with daughter and Co-Founder Markea).

Vivian and Debbie will fill us in on their journeys and their experiences as founders. They will also share some “secret sauce” on what it takes to raise money.

The Wharton Alumnae Founders & Funders Association (WAFFA) is on a mission to accelerate the success of Wharton and Penn alumnae in the start-up world – founders, investors and supporters. WAFFA is one of the fastest-growing clubs at the University, with over 5,700 members in under four years.

Women-led businesses have been largely overlooked by the investment community. We launched WAFFA when we discovered that only 13% of University of Pennsylvania founders are women and they raise just 6% of venture dollars. WAFFA harnesses the power of our network to educate, support, and foster connections for alumnae in the start-up community. We want to build an eco-system that fosters growth for women and accelerates our access to confidence and capital.
