Event Description



Alumni founders from the entrepreneurial communities of Columbia, Harvard, Princeton, and Wharton - each with an engaged entrepreneurial alumni base in the NYC area - will present an overview of their early-stage startup and answer questions from a panel of judges. Afterward, each founder will host a table during a networking reception at which attendees can engage one-on-one with each of them and network among themselves.

The judges will select the winner and the audience will also vote for their top choice. The winner of the judges' vote will be given special consideration for upcoming pitch nights at each of HBS Alumni Angels of New York, Princeton Alumni Angels, and Wharton Alumni Angels.

This is a wonderful opportunity to meet some of the talented founders in the NYC area and network with alumni from the entrepreneurial communities of each of the universities . Last year’s event was at capacity so we encourage you to register early.
