About this event

Princeton Entrepreneurship Council (PEC) and Princeton Women’s Network (PWN) invite you to attend the Women Founders Startup Showcase, to be held via Zoom on Thursday, July 30 starting at 4:00 pm EDT. Six women-founded startups from Princeton’s entrepreneurial community – comprising alumni, faculty, postdocs, and graduate and undergraduate students – have been selected to participate, to share their visions and business plans, and to connect with you.

This is one of several PEC initiatives to shine a light on women founders, to more broadly engage Princeton’s entrepreneurial ecosystem with them, and to help close the funding gap that exists for talented women entrepreneurs.

A wide range of startups applied to the Women Founders Startup Showcase. Eligibility included companies with a Princeton woman founder or C-suite executive and seeking funding – from pre-seed to series A – and spanning technology, life sciences, and double bottom line social impact enterprises. Dozens of applications were received and then, from a short list of 20 companies, six outstanding startups were invited to participate. The selected companies demonstrated a unique and significant value proposition, a comprehensive business plan, market traction momentum, a strong management team, and solid exit potential.

  • An emerging industry leader in the pet insurance market
  • A healthtech company developing a wearable, personal blood pressure monitoring device
  • A rapidly growing food company producing and distributing nutritious Latin-based foods
  • A precision medicine biotech startup focusing on breast cancer and other unmet needs in oncology
  • A fintech company enabling access by Gen Z consumers to educational loans and other credit products
  • A consumer tech company applying avatar and fashion-fitting visualization technologies to provide interactive and reliable e-commerce shopping.

Each participating startup will present for 6 minutes, followed by a 6-minute Q&A session with attendees. Additionally, all attendees are encouraged to download the Pre.vc app from their mobile device (or from your browser here) and register as a "pre-investor". This app will be activated for the showcase so that you may provide feedback to the startups and “invest” fictional Tiger currency in support of your favorite startup(s). At the end of the showcase, the top startups will be recognized.

Please contact Anne-Marie Mamam ` 84 (amaman@princeton.edu)or Don Seitz ’79 (donseitz@princeton.edu)with any questions regarding this showcase.
