Alumni Entrepreneurs Fund

The Princeton Alumni Entrepreneurs Fund (AEF) was designed to build and maintain a dynamic community of young alumni entrepreneurs supported by a network of more experienced alumni. The Alumni Entrepreneurs Fund leveraged Princeton's strong alumni network to deliver meaningful support to early career founders via mentorship, access to capital, education and curated networking.

PEC administered the program and continues to manage the AEF portfolio. AEF’s 30 startups leveraged $2.2 million total investment from Princeton into nearly $160 million in outside investment as of 2022. AEF is closed to new investments.
