Princeton Entrepreneurship Council

  • Lelu founder Ana Leyva '11 was Princeton Alumni Weekly's Tiger of the Week for June 16, 2021. Lelu was the winner of last year's inaugural
  • If there is one thing the pandemic has taught us all, it is the importance of adaptation. Regardless of the line of work, people around the world have had to adapt to major changes in both their businesses and day-to-day lives.
  • Over the past year, COVID-19 has overburdened the healthcare system with skyrocketing hospital admittance and infection rates. In the United States alone, coronavirus cases and deaths number 31.8 million and half a million, respectively.
  • Princeton University was not on junior Raya Ward’s radar when she was deciding where to study. A spur-of-the-moment Orange Key tour — her mother’s suggestion en route from their home in Georgia — shot Princeton to the top of her list. “A huge consideration for me was financial aid,” Ward said.
  • Over an action-packed three days in January, ten teams of Princeton graduate students and postdoctoral researchers forged and strengthened entrepreneurial ventures through the newly created Princeton Startup Bootcamp, led by startup accelerator firm Techstars and organized by Princeton Innovation.
