Princeton Startup Immersion Program (PSIP) is an immersive summer program for talented students seeking real-world experience at emerging startups in New York City, Shanghai, and Tel Aviv.

Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently evaluating both remote and in-person formats for PSIP New York, Shanghai, and Tel Aviv.  For specific changes and updates, including upcoming webinars and program dates, students will refer to email communications from the program staff.  If you have any questions, please contact Lilian Tsang or Manda Ryan.
