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.

 

Keep the Propellers Flying!

 The Propellers are entirely donations-funded.

TigerTalks in the City

Princeton Entrepreneurship Council is hosting a series of TigerTalks in the City events, the first of which will be in New York City on Thursday, October 6th.

Princeton Entrepreneurship Council introduces TigerTalks in the City, a quarterly panel discussion and networking event to connect alumni, faculty, and students. With the wave of entrepreneurship on campus and beyond, TigerTalks in the City will bring faculty to New York City to share key findings and insights from their research.

 

We invite you to join us at the inaugural TigerTalks in the City event on Thursday, October 6, 2016 at the offices of AppNexus, 28 W. 23rd Street. The topic is “Big Data and Little Privacy?” and explores the challenges of enabling big data apps while protecting the privacy of user-sensitive information. Four faculty members from Computer Science, Sociology, Woodrow Wilson School and Engineering will discuss their research.

 

The panel discussion will begin at 6:30pm and will be followed by a networking reception with hors d’oeuvres and drinks. Seating is limited, so please register early at entrepreneurs.princeton.edu/tigertalks.

 

You may also want to mark your calendar for the second TigerTalks in the City on December 1 for an informative discussion of “Smart Cities”. Future panels in March and May of next year will explore “Uberization” and “Bioethics”.

 

We look forward to seeing you on October 6.


Princeton Entrepreneurship Council (PEC) was established in July 2015 by President Eisgruber and Provost Lee, as the advisory and coordination body on entrepreneurship programs at Princeton University. PEC works closely with existing campus organizations to enable Entrepreneurship the Princeton Way.
