Event Description

In August 2021, the National Science Foundation announced that Princeton will lead a consortium of regional universities to form an innovation network: the new Northeast I-Corps Hub. This session, moderated by the hub’s lead instructor Christina Pellicane, was intended for faculty, grad students, local entrepreneurs, and people interested in getting involved in the hub from Delaware to New Haven. Academic institutions involved in the new hub include Princeton, partner institutions Rutgers and the University of Delaware, and affiliate institutions NJIT, Rowan, Lehigh, Temple and Delaware State.


This session was part of Engage 2021, Princeton University's 2nd annual innovation and entrepreneurship conference. The conference was live streamed December 1-2, 2021. Engage brings together researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs, industry, government and stakeholders from throughout the innovation ecosystem to catalyze the transformation of research into innovations that impact the world. Engage 2021 was hosted by Princeton Innovation and organized by the Office of Corporate Engagement and Foundation Relations


Princeton Innovation is the University’s campus-wide initiative to extend the benefits of Princeton discoveries into the world to create solutions for humanity. Princeton Innovation emerges from the University’s commitment to service, research and education.
