Six teams showcased their startups on Aug. 15 and 16 at Princeton University’s sixth-annual Demo Day. The event offered teams of students the opportunity to present the results of a summer of work in the eLab program at the Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education’s Entrepreneurial Hub in Princeton.

During the 10 weeks the teams spent in the eLab, they worked with mentors and advisers who helped them shape their visions. They also attended a three-day boot camp, workshops, meetings and lectures together, although their ideas were dramatically different — ranging from a company that wants to provide electricity to underserved markets to a company that sells electric outboard motors to replace traditional gas engines for small boats.  Learn more about Demo day startups.
