The Princeton Propellers:  What We Do

 


The Princeton Propellers, formed in March, 2016, stimulate and foster entrepreneurship --- across the entire Princeton Gown & Vicinity ecosystem, by bringing together a diverse set of players whose paths would not normally cross:  faculty, students, alumni, bankers, venture capitalists, attorneys and other stakeholders who support technical innovation in the Greater Princeton area.

 

We meet at Quadrangle Club, 33 Prospect Avenue, adjacent to the Princeton Campus, on the Second Tuesday of each month (September – June) 6 – 8 P for a cocktail party, anchored by an entrepreneur's issue-oriented talk, followed by vigorous Q & A.  Our slogan is "Getting Things Off the Ground --- and Bringing Them Back to Earth!"  That's what Propellers do.
