Startup Leadership as a Ticket to Success

Sunday, March 13
5:00PM - 6:00PM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon E
500 E 4th St

Princeton teaches Startup Leadership to enable its graduates to transform their ideas into successful enterprises with positive global impact. This session will start with a framing of the problem that most entrepreneurs fail after having successfully launched their companies. Video interviews with Wendy Kopp (Teach for America) and Brian O'Kelley (AppNexus) will then describe how they discovered these skills that enabled their success. A live discussion will ensue with past students on how they use these skills to accelerate their careers and start companies. The session will end with a summary of how the skills can be acquired and taught.
