New York TigerTrek

What is NYTT?

New York TigerTrek is an organized trip in which 20 rigorously-selected Princeton undergraduates are offered the opportunity to visit entrepeneurial luminaries at cutting edge start ups, venture capital firms, and corporates. We hold closed-door only, candid conversations with each leader we meet. For the Spring of 2021, due to COVID restrictions, NYTT is being offered as a semester-long fellowship.
