The Keller Center, the Jumpstart New Jersey Angel Network, and Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP in conjunction with Princeton's Office of Technology Licensing, are pleased to announce the 7th Annual Innovation Forum. The purpose of the Innovation Forum is to showcase Princeton research that offers the potential to be commercialized. The forum consists of a competition piece in which participants are asked to present their research in a 3 minute "elevator pitch" presentation to a panel of judges.

The competition and poster session are open to individuals and teams consisting of Princeton faculty, post doctoral candidates and graduate students. Audience members will include angel investors, venture capitalists, students, faculty, staff, and members of the Princeton area entrepreneurial community. Prize money totaling $40,000 will be awarded to the top three entries. To learn more about the judging process and the judges, please click here.

To participate in the competition, presenters are asked to submit some material prior to the competition so that the judges may review the submissions in advance of the competition. All material will need to be submitted no later than Thursday, February 2, 2012. To learn about what you will need to submit, please click here. Make sure to learn about innovations submitted in prior years and watch videos of other past presenter's elevator pitches.
