The Entrepreneurship Club, founded in 1999, is the largest student-run organization on the Princeton campus. The club is run in a very decentralized manner - there are two co-Presidents who oversee the activities and budgets of 15 different teams that are focused on different activities and sectors in entrepreneurship. There are more than 400 students who are actively involved in making the E-Club offerings happen, and have more than 3,000 general members in their community. To manage their activities, they have an annual budget of over $500,000.  

We’d like to introduce you to this year’s co-presidents of Princeton E-Club, Jackson Lehner and Elise Kratzer!  

Jackson Lehner '24, a Junior from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, is pursuing a degree in Spanish, with a certificate in Entrepreneurship. He is passionate about personal finance, nutrition, and helping others. To Jackson, “E-Club is a great community of like minded individuals interested in many different topics and aspects of entrepreneurship.” He particularly encourages people to explore the many different E-Club sub teams. 

Jackson’s vision for E-Club is that it provides many different opportunities and ways for people to connect across Princeton and across the world as they pursue their entrepreneurial ventures. Jackson thinks about entrepreneurship as a mindset – he believes that “entrepreneurship is not only for business, it takes place in anybody’s life in any way.” 

In addition to E-Club, Jackson also brings together his explored interests in personal finance, nutrition, and helping others as CMO of startup Berry. Berry’s goal is to make virtual grocery shopping easier, especially for those with dietary restrictions. 

Elise Kratzer '24 is a Junior from Menlo Park, California, pursuing a degree in Computer Science, with certificates in Entrepreneurship and Latin American Studies. To Elise, “people are everything,” and her work with E-Club has taught her how to strengthen her relationships with others in her life, while building both her professional career and personal interests.

With her “people-first” philosophy, Elise works to elevate groups that are historically underrepresented on campus and in entrepreneurship. Maintaining this theme through her other pursuits, Elise is also the co-chair of the Pace Center’s Princeton Civic Leadership Council and works to encourage students to integrate impact with service through the work they do.

You can find out more about the different E-Club teams on their website. And you can also register for the student and the alumni newsletters to stay in touch with what is happening with the E-Club.
