Workshops are open only to students and postdocs. Talks and seminars are open to the broader Princeton entrepreneurial community where noted. Workshops are listed in the Events tab.

Events

The Keller Center offers students, faculty, staff, and community members many opportunities to engage with one another; from dynamic large venue lectures, to round-table discussions; from campus specific workshops to open community exchanges. Our mission of education, innovation, design, and entrepreneurship not only reaches outside the classroom; it reaches outside the University gates. Talks and seminars are open to the broader Princeton entrepreneurial community where noted.
