parent_51faa782b5f268_19852110TigerLaunch is Princeton University’s collegiate entrepreneurship competition, put on annually by the Princeton Entrepreneurship Club. The competition is split across three stages: an online video pitch round, a regional competition in March, and finally Demo Day in April. The first stage of the competition ends on December 1st! To enter, you need to submit a pitch video, along with a short application describing the qualifications of your team, your product/service, and your goals. 

Here are the important dates: 

December 1: Video pitches due 

Early January: Regional Qualifiers announced 

Mid-March: Regional events take place

Mid-April: National finalists gather for Demo Day

Winning teams will receive mentorship, coaching, and funding to expand their idea. 

Your team can be 1-4 undergraduate or graduate students, or students on a gap year. Teams can submit a new idea, or something they have already been working on. This is a great opportunity to practice your pitch, create a promotional video, get clear on your goals with your team, network with professionals and college students in the field, and get critical feedback on your idea.
