Congratulations to the winners of the 2013 Innovation Forum!  

The Keller Center would like to thank all who participated in and attended the 8th Annual Innovation Forum on Tuesday, March 12. Despite the rain, the event drew a crowd of more than 125 guests including Princeton faculty, staff, and students, local area entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, as well as former forum participants. Six teams delivered impressive and inspiring research projects in 3-minute "elevator-pitch" style presentations. The presentations were followed by a lively reception and poster session and at the close of the evening, the three top winners were announced. Read the full story here.
