Here’s one how-to guide you’re not going to find on LifeHacker: First Round Capital’s Dorm Room Fund just published a walkthrough on how to get a startup up and running at the University of Pennsylvania. It features a whole slew of Penn-specific resources.
Penn student (and former Technical.ly contributor) David Ongchoco, who handles content and marketing over at DRF took to Medium to bang out an A+ recap of ways Wharton and Penn students can leverage their alma mater’s platform to get their startups off the ground (BTW, Scholly’s CEO Chris Gray, a former undergrad founder, approves).
From entrepreneurial clubs to pitch competitions and investment funds, the guide walks aspiring founders through the breadth of resources available to Penn entrepreneurs.
“This Penn guide is only the first of many ‘How to Start a Startup @ X University’ guides we’ll be releasing in the upcoming weeks and months,” Ongchoco told Technical.ly in an email.
Managing Partner Jeff Ellington gave the guide a shoutout on Twitter, plus a suggestion of one space that looks promising.
