The Keller Center's eLab Summer Accelerator Program at Princeton University is a launch pad for student startups, a creative co-working space open, by application only, to some of Princeton's brightest and most dynamic students.  An exceptional 10-week long summer program awaits these students as they learn from the best innovators and investors and fine tune their nascent start up ideas to develop them into viable and scalable ventures. Over a period of 10 weeks, students will work together in a supportive community of fellow entrepreneurs, work closely with assigned mentors and participate in training sessions and workshops. At closure of the summer program, the students participate in Demo Day, at which they share their plans with investors, inventors, experts and others from the entrepreneurial community.

An addition to the Keller Center's eLab initiative, and serving as an exciting extension of the Summer Accelerator, the eLab Incubator Program aims to provide students a collaborative co-working space in which they can pursue their entrepreneurial ambitions during the academic year. 

The new program, which will launch on a trial basis in March 2013, will consist of two 10-week long sessions, with one session per semester.  During the course of the 10 weeks, teams will have 24-hour access to the eLab space, located in Von Neumann Hall adjacent to the Engineering Quad.  Each team will have their own workspace, but will also work with, and learn from, their fellow entrepreneurs.  This is the true goal of the Incubator: to provide a space where collaborative learning and innovation can thrive, all with the end goal of taking innovative student ideas one stop closer to becoming a reality.
