Lunch Talk with Nathan Crumpton '08

Date and Time: 
Location: Entrepreneurial Hub, Event Room 115


The Keller Center is pleased to welcome entrepreneur Nathan Crumpton '08 to the Entrepreneurial Hub on Monday, May 1 at 12:30pm. Nathan, who is an athlete, model, and skilled photographer, will share his slightly "non-traditional" entrepreneurial journey over lunch with students. This session is open to Princeton undergraduate and graduate students and registration is required.


Nathan Crumpton '08 is a member of the USA National Team in the sport of skeleton, the head-first winter Olympic ice sliding sport.  As a former All-Ivy track & field athlete, Nathan took upon the task of learning his new sport in 2011, at an age when most competitive athletes usually contemplate retirement.  His breakthrough year occurred during the 2014-2015 season when he qualified for his first National Team spot, and his progress continued over the ensuing two seasons.  The 2015-2016 season saw him earn his first berth on the elite World Cup circuit, and qualify for the 2016 World Championships, where he finished in 8th place.  He finished this past season ranked 11th in overall World Cup points.  He also started co-commentating the women's skeleton World Cup TV broadcasts for NBC-Universal in the US & the CBC in Canada.  

In the summer months, when he isn't traveling the world and racing, Nathan works as a model, and is represented by Sports & Lifestyle Unlimited and The McCarty Agency.  He is also an avid photographer; a passion which he developed at Princeton, where he sold prints from a private server he hosted in his dorm room.  He continues to photograph intermittently, and focuses most of his photographic efforts on fine art nature prints.
