LIFE is a new lecture series designed for Princeton faculty innovators across all disciplines. The monthly sessions will discuss different important aspects of entrepreneurship and innovation in the natural sciences, engineering, social sciences, humanities and the arts. As a group, the series should help faculty understand important parts of spinning their innovations off campus so that they can have an impact. The series features leading experts in the field of startup creation, and covers topics such as legal incorporation, funding strategies, effective teambuilding and product-market fit.

The audience for this series is faculty, postdoctoral and staff researchers, and graduate students.

The series is a collaboration between the Princeton Entrepreneurship Council and the Office of Technology Licensing, which are both part of the Office of the Dean for Research
