Princeton Underrepresented Minority Founders Startup Showcase

Thu, Sep 10, 2020, 4:00 pm
Princeton Entrepreneurship Council

The Princeton Underrepresented Minority Founders Startup Showcase will feature six companies, selected from the pool of applications, ranging from commercial ventures to social impact (double net bottom line) organizations and spanning the funding spectrum (not yet funded, self-funded, angel-funded, and venture-funded seed and A rounds, but excluding companies which have raised funds in post-Series A rounds). Audience attendees, which will include many angel and VC investors as well as Princeton alumni, students, faculty, and their guests, will "invest fictional currency" and the top invested companies will be recognized.

Please contact PEC's Anne-Marie Maman '84, Executive Director, at or Don Seitz ’79, Assistant Director, at with any questions.

We encourage all startups with a Princeton underrepresented minority founder or C-suite executive (alum/faculty/postdoc/graduate or undergraduate student) to apply to the showcase. Applications will be accepted through Sunday, August 16 at 11:59pm EDT. Companies selected to present at the showcase will be notified by Monday, August 24. All applicants confirm that, if selected, they will be able to participate in the September 10th showcase (tentatively scheduled for 4:00 pm EDT). Click here to apply.
