Event Description

Please note this event, originally scheduled for March 25, is now virtual and rescheduled for April 2 at 5pm EDT. A link to a Zoom webinar will be sent to registrants prior to the event.

This is the second in a series of TigerTalks in the City panel discussions featuring black Princeton alumni entrepreneurs.

This conversation will explore the catalysts, experiences, and key learnings of five exceptional alumni who – like many of us – started their careers following graduation in more traditional, corporate settings. Yet, at some later point, their passions or individual circumstances convinced them to take the initiative and transition to entrepreneurial endeavors. The alumni panelists include Karen Palmer ’84Ramsey Smith ’90Maisha Walker ’94Brigitte Anderson ’02, and Eric Plummer ’10. Moderating the panel will be Laurence Latimer *01. Spanning early careers in media, banking, and consumer products, these “mid-career” entrepreneurs are now owners of consulting businesses, founders of startups, or executives in rapidly growing startup companies.
