The Keller Center’s eLab Summer Accelerator Program at Princeton University is a launch pad for student startups. The program is open, by application only, to some of Princeton’s brightest and most dynamic students. Now in its sixth, the eLab is based in the Entrepreneurship Hub at 34 Chambers Street in downtown Princeton. Over a period of 10 weeks, student teams work intensively on their startup ideas with the goal of developing them into viable and scalable ventures. The students work together in a supportive community of fellow entrepreneurs, assigned mentors, and participate in training sessions and workshops. At closure of the summer program, the students participate in two Demo Days, at which they share their plans with a broad audience.
The Keller Center will hold two eLab Demo Days again this year in Princeton and at AppNexus in New York City. At the Demo Days, our eLab teams will have the opportunity to showcase their entrepreneurial ventures to an audience of investors, innovators, and entrepreneurs.
Demo Days consist of opening remarks by Keller Center director and executive director followed by seven startup team presentations: 2-minute promo video, 8-minute pitch, and 5 minutes of Q&A with a feedback panel. After the presentations, guests are invited to a reception where they can visit demo stations, meet, and talk to the teams about their ventures.
