About our Mentors

Princeton alumni who have expressed an interest to help other alumni, students, and faculty are our OfficeHours mentors. They span industries from software, digital media, and biosciences to venture capital and law, and from technology and life sciences enterprises to social and arts enterprises.

Their areas of expertise include business development, fundraising, creating a compelling pitch deck, legal issues such as contracts, corporate structure, and IP rights, marketing, business planning, finance, operations, public relations and strategy.

They span four decades of graduation years and represent a diverse mix of backgrounds.

While each has specific skills and experiences, they all share an unwavering desire to help you and contribute to your success.
