Turner MIINT@Wharton

Compete with your classmates before competing with the world.

Managed by the ESG Initiative at the Wharton School, Turner MIINT@Wharton is Penn’s internal competition to select the student team that will represent Wharton at the global finals in April 2023.

First, select and register your team of 3-5 students. You will then receive an invitation to join the Turner MIINT online learning platform where you can access the curriculum, learn about opportunities for career treks with other schools, and submit any deliverables. In March 2023, a team of judges will select the winning team to represent Wharton at the global finals in April.

By participating in Turner MIINT@Wharton, you will also receive supplementary training and networking opportunities throughout the academic year.

The internal program culminates with student teams making presentations to an expert panel of judges at Wharton for the chance to compete in the final Turner MIINT competition. The winning team will receive a $50,000 investment into the company featured in its presentation.

THE SUPPORT AND VISION OF IMPACT INVESTOR BOBBY TURNER, W’84, CATALYZED THE LAUNCH OF TURNER MIINT.

As a longtime supporter of social impact activities at Wharton, Turner – CEO of Turner Impact Capital – is an example of, as Joseph Wharton said, harnessing the power of business to “solve the social problems incident to our civilization.” He also helps inform the ongoing priorities and future direction of the Wharton School as a member of the board of overseers. The ESG Initiative is very grateful to Lauren Golub Turner, W’85, and Bobby Turner, W’84 for their support.
