About Princeton AlumniCorps:

Princeton AlumniCorps engages alumni at every age. Our year-long Princeton Project 55 Fellowships are for graduating Princeton seniors and other recent graduates. Emerging Leaders is a professional development program for nonprofit managers a little bit further along in their careers; the program is open to alumni of other institutions. ARC Innovators is for seasoned alumni with skills to offer; Innovators have ranged in age from 22 to 82; anyone in the wider Princeton network is welcome. Our volunteers are Princeton alumni of all ages, who serve as mentors, advisors, area committee members, Board members, seminar speakers, and more.

About the New Jersey Area Committee:

We support the Project 55 fellows who are placed in New Jersey, with area alumni mentors and networking/training opportunities. We also support the ARC Innovators program in New Jersey. We help identify nonprofit partner organizations to work with our Fellows, Innovators, and Emerging Leaders.

Marsha Rosenthal ’76 and Tom Magnus ’77 K55 chair the New Jersey Committee, which also includes Rick Ober ’65, Julia Otis ’91, and Kef Kasdin ’85. 

Thank you so much for your interest and enthusiasm. Please join us. Many hands make light work, and we hope to have fun together.

PA3 "Second Tuesdays" Propeller

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016 - 6pm


After graduating from Princeton in 2012, Mark spent a year at Google coordinating major sports partnerships for YouTube and Google+.  While at Google, he developed a passion for building and designing products.  In late 2013, Mark left Google and joined the team that launched Movo. 

Movo designed and manufactured a fully customizable activity tracker for companies looking to engage employees around the importance of health and wellness.  Over the course of two years, Movo built a client roster of major companies including, Subway, UBS, Johnson and Johnson, Princeton University and Burger King. 

As CEO and Co-Founder, Mark designed Movo’s hardware and software products, built an efficient supply chain in China, oversaw Movo’s global distribution center in Indianapolis and constructed and contributed to an effective sales and marketing strategy.

After two years of work and over 10,000 devices sold, Movo hit a crossroads.  Their lean team and limited resources made it difficult to sustain their success and scale their operation.  With market leaders struggling in the space, the challenges began to overwhelm the investors who ultimately decided to wind the operation down. 

Mark is eager to share his story as a cautionary tale of fast growth in a competitive sector.
