The Princeton Entrepreneurs Network (“PEN”), with 10,000 alumni members and a 20 years history of annual Startup competitions, is professedly one of the largest, if not the largest, Princeton alumni organizations that aren’t within the direct aegis of the Alumni Association/Alumni Council/Office of Alumni Affairs. PEN is currently led by Mayra Ceja, Sabrina Parsons, and Eric Sharret.
Our motto: “PEN is a network by alumni entrepreneurs for alumni entrepreneurs.”
PEN is run by alumni for alumni entrepreneurs. Our organization is 100% volunteer based. Our funding comes directly from your “$10 ticket purchases” and “donations”. We have local chapters in PEN NYC and PEN Silicon Valley and “sleeper cells” in Boston, Austin, Montreal, Chicago, So-Cal, DC, Germany, UK.
As far as PEN is concerned, you are a Princeton Alumnus/a the day you receive “Yes!” AND get your .edu address. Join the Network!
Our marquee event is the Startup Competition, held on-campus during the university’s vibrant, annual, early-Summer reunions. Additionally, we have PEN NYC, PEN Silicon Valley, and more coming soon. Want to get involved?
The Princeton Entrepreneurs Network is a not-for-profit organization and 100% volunteer driven and funded 100% alumni contributions.
