About this event

Princeton Entrepreneurship Council, Harvard Business School Alumni Angels and Princeton Alumni Angels invite you to the Annual Princeton-HBS Startup Showcase, to be held virtually this year on Thursday, July 14, 2022 at 6 pm EDT.

A select group of premier Princeton and HBS-founded startup companies will present an overview of their businesses followed by Q&A from an expert panel of judges. Afterward, each founder will host a breakout room where attendees can ask additional questions.

The judges will select the winner and the audience will also vote on their top choice. The winner of the judges' vote will be given special consideration for upcoming HBS Angels of New York and Princeton Alumni Angels pitch nights. Audience members will include angel investors and entrepreneurs from Harvard and Princeton.

This is a wonderful opportunity to meet some of the rising stars among Princeton and HBS entrepreneurs and network with fellow alumni from each school.

Featured Startups:

Revela is a team of Harvard scientists that use AI tools to search for unique and completely new molecules that hit at the root of the hair loss problem facing women. Sifting through millions of compounds, new ingredients have been discovered and clinically tested to safely and effectively stimulate the actual hair follicle site and regenerate hair growth.

Wavely Diagnostics, led by a Princeton alumna, enables 69% of acute pediatric visits to shift to a virtual experience with smartphone-based medical diagnostics, starting with ear infections.

Exponent, co-founded by a Princeton alumnus, helps people land their dream job in tech and advance their tech careers with a comprehensive community-based learning platform. Trusted partners include Stanford, Wharton, Yale, UVA, Michigan and Duke.

TrueToForm, co-founded by Princeton and Dartmouth alumnae, is a digital workflow solution that enables scalable, made-to-measure apparel production. Its proprietary body scanning app obtains accurate body data and generates custom avatars that integrate directly with existing 3D design workflows.

Project Plastic, co-founded by two Princeton alumni, is developing the world's first device for removing microplastics from rivers. Our waters are polluted with over 600 million tons of plastic, 80% of which enter via rivers. Once in the water, plastics break down into microscopic pieces that are almost impossible to detect or collect. Until now.

Proxi, co-founded by a trio of female leaders, is building an infrastructure of niche, mapped guides to local areas. Easy to use, brandable and shareable, Proxi maps are used by hospitality professionals and influencers to gain unique insight into customer conversion.
