Princeton Entrepreneurship Series: Startup CEOs "Lessons Learned"

Inspired by one of our most popular events, this presentation in San Francisco promises to be full of insight!

Please join the Entrepreneurship Series at our next meeting on Tuesday, May 20th, where a special panel of fellow Tiger entrepreneurs will be sharing their insights and paths through the startup experience. In particular, each will talk about their individual "key lessons learned" along the way as well as exits where applicable. We will open up the panel for general Q&A afterwards, followed by a short structured networking activity. 

Tuesday, May 20th at 7 pm
