Two Princeton University events on Thursday, April 2, are potentially useful to area entrepreneurs in Einstein’s Alley. One is on executive ethics, and the other is more like a game show, where the winning ideas walk away with $40,000.
David F. Eisner, CEO of The Markets.com, speaks on “A Jewish Perspective on Ethics in the Executive Suite” at 4:30 p.m. in the Lewis Library, Room 138, on Washington Road. David W. Miller, director of the Princeton University Faith & Work Initiative, moderates the free talk sponsored by the Center for the Study of Religion and the Center for Jewish Life.
Billed as a “single-source destination site for comprehensive and real-time equity capital markets information and research from leading global investment banks,” it has a portal that allows institutional clients to access the web-sites of member banks. A graduate of American University with a law degree from Boston University, Eisner has been CEO of The Markets LLC since it was founded in 2000 by 11 leading banks.
Over at the E-Quad, the Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education is holding it Winners Take All Evening, the 4th annual Innovation Forum. The Jumpstart NJ Angel Network offers a total of $40,000 in prize money to three companies at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Computer Science 104. After the three-minute presentation from each of 12 companies you can place your bets for which the judges will choose. Among the entrants (all from the university) are a multiple-people MRI scanner that can simultaneously scan more than one person for studying brain responses of inter-person communication and physical contact, a monetary system for online content trading, and an ultra efficient energy laser spectroscopic trace gas sensor for sensor networks and portable chemical analysis.
It is free, and so is the reception afterward
