Princeton Entrepreneurship Council's Startup Showcases shine a light on extraordinary Princeton founders, with compelling business plans across the spectrum of industry sectors and social impact enterprises, and helping them make valuable connections with alumni and investors. The Showcases generally include four to six companies with a Princeton alum, faculty, student or postdoc founder or member of the C-suite, with angel and venture capital investors often in the audience. Startups across the funding spectrum (not yet funded, self-funded, angel funded, venture-backed, etc.) and across industries are encouraged to apply to present. Newly added themed Startup Showcases include the Princeton Women Founders Startup Showcase and the Princeton Underrepresented Minority Founders Startup Showcase.
The Startup Showcase is a regular feature of Princeton Entrepreneurship Council's Tiger Entrepreneurs Conference, often with co-hosted with partner organizations such as Princeton Alumni Angels. Audience members at a Startup Showcase are encouraged to participate by "investing" in the presenting companies with fictional "Tiger Currency" using the Pre app.
