Are you interested in obtaining funding for your entrepreneurial project? Or interested in investing in startups or supporting entrepreneurial ventures?

Princeton Entrepreneurship Council can connect you with people on both sides of the funding equation.

PEC organizes several startup funding opportunities, including the START Entrepreneurs program, Princeton Startup Bootcamp powered by VentureWell, and several Startup Showcases that include a keen focus on women and underrepresented minority founders. PEC also routinely advises and connects Princeton alumni, faculty, postdocs and students to other sources of startup funding around campus and beyond.

PEC is also connected to a wide array of venture capital firms and other sources of funding for entrepreneurs within the Princeton entrepreneurial ecosystem. These include Princeton-focused VC firms and angel funding groups (see sidebar). 

PEC can advise and connect Princeton entrepreneurs with other sources of funding in the regional New Jersey ecosystem and beyond. Contact Anne-Marie Maman '84, PEC executive director.

Alumni Entrepreneurs Fund

Princeton’s first venture fund, the Alumni Entrepreneurs Fund, is fully invested. PEC administered the program and continues to manage the AEF portfolio. AEF’s 30 startups leveraged the $2.2 million total investment into nearly $160 million in outside investment as of 2022.
