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 seventh year, the eLab is based in the Entrepreneurial Hub at 34 Chambers Street where, over a period of ten 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 faculty advisors, as well as participate in a boot camp, training sessions and workshops. At closure of the summer program, the students participate in two Demo Days, where they share their plans with a broad audience.
At Demo Day, our seven eLab teams will have the opportunity to showcase their entrepreneurial ventures to an audience of investors, innovators, faculty, and entrepreneurs.
Demo Day consists of opening remarks by Keller Center's Director and Executive Director followed by seven startup team presentations including a 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 networking reception where they can visit demo stations and learn more about each of the seven startup companies.
This event is free and open to the public and registration is required. Free parking is available in Lot 21, with an 8-minute walk to the Frick Chemistry Lab.
Walking directions can be found here. Note that access to Frick is via the entrance closest to Streicker Bridge.
