ABOUT
Council

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.

"Entrepreneurship is defined at Princeton as follows: you are an entrepreneur anytime you initiate transformation through risk-taking actions and value-creating organizations."

Vision

At the beginning of 2014, Provost David S. Lee ‘99 created the Princeton Entrepreneurship Advisory Committee (PEAC), a balanced group of faculty, students, administrators, and alumni with expertise in this area. The committee was asked to develop a bold, long–term vision of how the University can best support its student, faculty, and alumni entrepreneurs in a way that furthers Princeton’s educational mission and is rooted in its strengths as a liberal arts institution and as a leading research university.
