Founded by Penn grads Andrew Kortina and Iqram Magdon-Ismail, Venmo has long been one of PennApps’s top sponsors. This year, the student-run college hackathon decided to show the now New York City-based mobile payment company a little love.
The PennApps executive team created a (loving) parody ad campaign called “Alex Goes To PennApps,” which features PennApps organizer Alex Hu. The ads say things like “Alex Says Hi To The NSA.”
