Princeton Innovation is a campus-wide initiative that aims to benefit humanity through innovation and entrepreneurship.
Our faculty, staff researchers, students and alumni combine the pursuit of curiosity-driven knowledge with the desire to solve the major challenges of our time. Princeton Innovation nurtures this enterprising spirit through our programs, spaces and relationships. We support the Princeton community in their innovation and entrepreneurial goals as they translate their discoveries and inventions into technologies and services that have a positive impact on society.
