Have an entrepreneurial idea? Or, love hearing wild and exciting ideas be pitched? Join us for one of the best nights of the New Venture Challenge 10, the Quick Pitch event! Watch and listen as students, faculty, and staff from all disciplines share their dreams for new ventures. This year, we will have two quick pitch nights to accommodate the high level of interest with about 20 pitches happening back to back in 1 minute intervals. This is the perfect opportunity to connect with CU Boulder’s innovative spirit, find team members, practice pitching, or simply see what ideas are out there. Light refreshments will be served after the event during networking time.
Pearl Street Mall Students, alumni, faculty, staff and the Boulder community come together to celebrate their CU pride during the Homecoming Parade and Pep Rally on the Pearl Street Mall. Join us for this festive night in the heart of Boulder. The parade begins at 7 p.m. and the pep rally hosted by Rick George and CU Athletics will follow on the Boulder Courthouse Lawn.
