About the eLab Summer Accelerator
The Keller Center's eLab at Princeton University is a launch pad for student startups, a creative co-working space open to some of Princeton's brightest and most dynamic students. A 10-week long summer program awaits these students as they learn from the best innovators and investors and fine tune their nascent start up ideas to develop them into viable and scalable ventures. Over a period of ten weeks, students will work together in a supportive community of fellow entrepreneurs, work closely with assigned mentors and participate in various trainings and workshops.
Prior to the inception of the program, teams selected for the eLab meet with a faculty member to discuss their key project milestones, deliverables, and formalized plan of action. During the summer under the tutelage of their mentors, students work to achieve the milestones they have set for themselves. At closure of the summer program, the students participate in Demo Days in Princeton and NYC, at which they share their plans with investors, inventors, experts and others from the entrepreneurial community.
