2022 New York City Tiger Entrepreneurs Conference to celebrate Princeton entrepreneurship and New York City’s vibrant startup scene

March 14, 2022

The growth of Princeton entrepreneurship in the last six years has been diverse, exciting and a cause for celebration. On April 7 and 8, Princeton Entrepreneurship Council (PEC) will host the 2022 New York City Tiger Entrepreneurs Conference to celebrate both Princeton entrepreneurship and the city’s vibrant startup scene. 

The conference will kick off with a virtual Startup Showcase featuring exceptional alumni, faculty, and postdoc founders on Thursday evening, April 7. The following day, Friday April 8, the conference will be an in-person, all-day event in midtown Manhattan featuring panel discussions, fireside chats, workshops and a closing reception. PEC invites Princeton alumni, faculty, postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students, staff and friends of Princeton to attend and network on both days of the conference. 

Reflecting Princeton entrepreneurship’s focus across industries and diversity among people, the conference agenda for the all-day event on April 8 includes sessions on climate tech and sustainability, sports, arts, social impact, blockchain, food tech, venture capital, on-campus innovation, and more. The conference also includes a series of entrepreneurial skills-based workshops focused on funding and investing, among others.

In addition to an extraordinary array of alumni panelists, the conference will feature several University leaders and professors who are driving innovative change. These include Andrea Goldsmith, Princeton’s Dean of Engineering and Applied Science and the Arthur LeGrand Doty Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering; Majora Carter, visiting lecturer at the Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education, real estate developer, urban revitalization strategist, MacArthur Fellow and Peabody Award-winning broadcaster; John Mack ’00, the Ford Family Director of Athletics at Princeton; David W. Miller, Keller Center faculty and director of the Princeton Faith and Work Initiative at the Keller Center; and James Steward, the Nancy A. Nasher-David J. Haemisegger, Class of 1976 Director of the Princeton Art Museum. 

PEC is proud to collaborate with Princeton Alumni Angels, the Keller Center, Lewis Center for the Arts and the Princeton Department of Athletics to present the 2022 NYC Tiger Entrepreneurs Conference. PEC is excited to feature coffee from Boogie Down Grind Cafe (founded by Majora Carter), located in the South Bronx.
