What are your responsibilities at the Keller Center?
I support the eLab Accelerator, eLab Incubator, and Princeton Startup Immersion Program. I am responsible for the many needs of the Princeton Entrepreneurial Hub facility, including maintenance issues to keep the building running smoothly, event and meeting room management for Keller Center programs as well as our many campus partners, and supply/snack inventory to fuel our hardworking eLab and Tiger Challenge students. I also support the Keller Center director and executive director with meeting and event needs.
What do you appreciate most about the Keller Center?
I truly appreciate the passion of the staff, faculty, and students at the Keller Center. It’s inspiring to see staff and faculty so dedicated to helping students find their niche in the entrepreneurial landscape, and it’s equally as inspiring to watch students learning about themselves and growing as people. Students can be successful here whether they come in with a well-formed idea for a start-up or come in wondering how they might fit into this very diverse space. A passion for discovery – that is what I appreciate, take home, and learn from.
What advice would you have for students about getting involved at the Keller Center?
I would advise that every student, regardless of year or major, take a moment to learn about the Keller Center and what it offers. We aren’t just one thing for one type of student – our programs and courses and talks are advantageous for everyone, and our community is wonderfully supportive.
