From natural foods and social impact to technology and creativity, no idea is too small or too big for the CU Boulder New Venture Challenge.  What idea do you want to pursue?

The New Venture Challenge connects the campus with the Boulder community to develop and fund entrepreneurial ideas.

Between fall and spring semesters, teams form, work with mentors, and refine their ideas before pitching at the championships.  The NVC provides a way for CU Boulder students, faculty, staff, and the Boulder community to learn about the process of launching ventures through events, workshops, mentorship, and networking.

The three aims of the NVC are to:

  1. Collapse the CU Boulder campus- encourage participants to explore entrepreneurship, no matter what discipline or department they are from
  2. Connect the campus and community- unite CU Boulder and the Boulder community to leverage our world class startup ecosystem
  3. Have fun and inspire entrepreneurial experiences - everyone should be able to enjoy the journey
