Great article on the re-branding of the Wharton Business Plan competition into the "Penn-Wharton Startup Challenge". The re-branding acknowledges that successful startups are less about formalized business plans, and more about experimentation, iteration, and advocating ideas to key stakeholders (i.e. investors, key employees) to generate buy-in. More importantly, it acknowledges that potential partners can be drawn from a variety of Penn schools (each with specialized skillsets) rather than relying solely on students at Wharton.
