Pitch your idea and find your dream team. Hack together with some of the most talented members of the Princeton community (and a whole bunch of other universities on the East Coast). Enjoy the mentorship of rockstar entrepreneurs, VCs, and developers. Meet representatives from some of the hottest tech startups.
