The 13th Annual innovation Forum will be held on Wednesday March 14th, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. at Princeton University's Carl Fields Center.  In conjunction with Princeton’s Office of Technology Licensing, the Keller Center hosts the annual Innovation Forum. The purpose of the Innovation Forum is to showcase Princeton research that offers the potential to be commercialized.  Craig Arnold, Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University will deliver the keynote: 'Fast Optics'


The Innovation Forum consists of a competition piece in which participants present their research in a three-minute “elevator pitch” presentation to the audience and a panel of judges. Audience members include angel investors, venture capitalists, students, faculty, staff, and members of the Princeton area entrepreneurial community. 

Following the presentations, a networking reception is held to allow participants to further discuss and demonstrate their research. Prize money totaling $30,000 is awarded to the top three entries. 


The competition is open to individuals and teams consisting of Princeton faculty, post doctoral candidates, and graduate students.  If you are interested in participating in the upcoming 2018 Innovation Forum review our Call for Submissions,  as well as our past participants pitches, then contact Cornelia Huellstrunk.
