Entrepreneurship, innovation, and design increasingly have become vehicles by which technology has been able to make a meaningful impact on society. At Princeton, where students develop an ability to think critically, there is great interest among students to understand entrepreneurship, innovation, and design as activities that stimulate economic growth and social change and as a potential career options.
To satisfy this growing interest, the Keller Center supports a wide range of activities that range from course offerings and Workshops, to co-curricular offerings such as summer internships, the eLab Summer Accelerator Program and eLab semester incubator, TigerChallenge, lecture series and the annual Innovation Forum. Additionally, there is broad, student-led programming coordinated through groups such as the Entrepreneurship Club and the Princeton Social Entrepreneurship Initiative, and initiatives by individual faculty and students.
Certificate in Entrepreneurship
The certificate program exposes students to different ways of understanding, conceptualizing, and for some, building enterprises that create value through positive impact on society, whether through a commercial or social venture.
The Keller Center offers exciting internship programs for students seeking summer opportunities that can provide experience, exposure, and mentorship outside of the classroom.
Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) is a unique program in which teams of undergraduates are designing, building, and deploying real systems to solve engineering-based problems for local community service and education organizations. At Princeton, the Keller Center partners with Community-Based Learning Initiative (CBLI) to provide students with this hands-on multi-disciplinary learning experience.
