Ever wonder if Seth Priebatsch, the 21-year-old entrepreneurial wunderkid who dropped out of Princeton his freshman year, misses kicking it with his peers on campus? Well, Priebatsch had this to offer in his Sunday New York Times profile (which described Priebatsch as a “teenage Vulcan):
“I had friends at Princeton; I’m sure it’d be fun to see them,” he says. “But I know that what I’m going after is huge and others are going after it, and if they’re not, they’re making a mistake. But other people will figure it out, and every minute that I’m not working on it is a minute when they’re making progress and I’m not. And that is just not O.K.”
The would-be entreprenuers would be wise to listen to whatever Priebatsch has to offer, terrifyingly determined as it may be: Scvngr, the tech start-up he started while still a student at Princeton, pulled in a cool $4 million from Google Ventures.
