ALUMNI & CURRENT STUDENTS
Every year, PA3 welcomes the incoming freshmen and incoming graduate students from the local area with a dual event: an ice cream social for the freshmen and a beer&pizza social for the grad students.  We request alumni and current students to attend, as well, to answer questions and generally give a rousing welcome to these shiny, new tigers.   If you stick around for the dual event, you will get a backwards dinner (dessert first) and have great fun - we promise!  Please RSVP.

PARENTS OF INCOMING FRESHMEN
PA3 also warmly welcomes the parents. We want to celebrate with you on your child's success. As you drop your student off on 8/24 for the social event, please come to the parents' event next door. You will be meeting other PA3 parents and asking them about the exciting journey ahead at Princeton. There will be snack provided. It's a great chance of social while waiting for your child to finish his/her event. Hope to see you there!   Please RSVP.
- Ann Huang, PA3 Parents Committee Chair & Current Princeton Parent

GRADUATE STUDENTS
Please join us in welcoming the new crop of grad students before they are buried in course work, nose-deep in dissertations, and hidden in research labs.  Free beer and pizza.  Please RSVP.

PA3 "Second Tuesdays" Propeller

MAY 2016 PROPELLER
Tuesday, May 10th, 2016 - 6pm

SPEAKER:  MARK TANNER ‘12

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.
