This was the fourth year that the Keller Center has held its Demo Day, the culmination of the center'seLab student startup accelerator. The summer-long program provides work space, instruction and support for student teams who compete for admission. The program also provides up to $20,000 in funding without taking any equity in the fledgling ventures. Team members are matched with veteran entrepreneurs who serve as mentors, and they attend workshops and coaching sessions that concentrate on different aspects of launching a startup.
This summer marked the first year that the teams worked at the University's new Entrepreneurial Hub at 34 Chambers St. The 10,000-square-foot incubator space in downtown Princeton offers working space and information technology support for student ventures as well as startups founded by faculty members and alumni.
