Hugh Long, Wells Fargo Regional President for Pennsylvania and Delaware, Therese Flaherty, Director of the Wharton SBDC, and Howard Kaufold, Vice Dean of the Wharton MBA Program and Academic Director of the Wharton SBDC at the reception announcing the gift on December 8, 2011.

In late 2011, Wells Fargo made a multi-year commitment of $500,000 to support the Wharton SBDC, enabling the Wharton SBDC to enhance our core programs that help over 700 small businesses annually to start, grow and prosper. This gift expanded Wells Fargo’s relationship with the Wharton SBDC, The Wharton School and the University of Pennsylvania.
