Princeton Alum: Pants that Fit

Men’s pants that fit? It was a new idea three years ago when Brian Spaly (Princeton, Class of 2000) co-founded Bonobos, the company that aims to revolutionize how men buy pants.

Spaly keynotes the Princeton Entrepreneurs’ Network Conference at Princeton University’s Friend Center on reunion weekend — Friday, May 28, 9:30 to 4:30 p.m. He named the company after a endangered species of Great Ape that is found only in the wild in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the company supports an ape sanctuary in the DRC.

Tickets for this conference are $30 and are open to all, not just alums.

The agenda shows that Spaly’s keynote speech is at 10, followed by a choice of workshops.

– Press Panel :: How To Land Your Story In Print with panelists from Inc. Magazine,, NJBIZ, and The Times of Trenton. Kevin McLaughlin of Resound Marketing is the moderator and sent me the agenda, thank you, Kevin.

– Legal :: The ABCs of Emerging Growth Companies with Steve Baglio from Gunderson Dettmer

– Planning :: Business Plans for the Real World with expert Tim Berry

Lunch is at 12:15, and the all important business plan competition starts at 1:45, ending with cocktails and networking at 4 p.m. At $30, that’s a bargain in information, let alone in networking. Wear orange.
