Anne-Marie Maman

Executive Director, Princeton Entrepreneurship Council

Anne-Marie Maman is the Executive Director of the Princeton Entrepreneurship Council. The Princeton Entrepreneurship Council (PEC) was established in 2015 by Princeton University as its advisory and coordination body on entrepreneurship. PEC works closely with many existing organizations both on and off campus to promote entrepreneurship on campus and among its alumni. As the inaugural Executive Director of the Princeton Entrepreneurship Council, she has been responsible for driving changes to Princeton’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, developing programs designed to meet the needs of faculty, grad students, and alumni entrepreneurs. Anne-Marie and her team initiated and are running a variety of programs focused on educating entrepreneurs of all levels and ages for Princeton affiliated entrepreneurs.

Anne-Marie started her career focusing on early customer discovery and product/market fit for cutting edge technologies within large healthcare companies (Johnson & Johnson, US Surgical, Genzyme). Her passion for creating and introducing new medical inventions that improve patient care brought her into startups as the first employee at Axya Medical, developing automated suturing for both open and minimally invasive surgeries. She then founded three medical technology companies: LumenVu developed a bedside method of placing catheters without the need for x-rays, funded by Ben Franklin Technology Partners and BioAdvance; PhOx Diagnostics developed technology to detect bacteria in real-time also funded by BFTP and worked with the USDA under a CRADA agreement; and Oxygense developed a system for the early detection of hemorrhagic shock, funded by SBIRs. LumenVu, was acquired by SonoSite (now Fuji Film).

Anne-Marie has an AB in English from Princeton University, and an MBA in health care marketing and finance from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern.
