In collaboration with Princeton’s Office of Technology Licensing, the Keller Center hosts an annual Innovation Forum. The purpose of the Forum is to showcase Princeton research that offers the potential to be commercialized.
The Innovation Forum consists of a competition piece in which participants present their research in a 3-minute “elevator pitch” to the audience and a panel of judges. Audience members include angel investors, venture capitalists, students, faculty, staff, and members of the Princeton area entrepreneurial community.
Following the presentations, a networking reception is held to allow participants to further discuss and demonstrate their research. Prize money totaling $30,000 is awarded to the top three entries.
