Mentors are the secret sauce that makes the New Venture Challenge so special.

As a mentor in the NVC, you can expect to put your unique talents and experience to good use by “Giving First” to companies in multiple industries and at every stage of early development.  Through your mentorship and participation, you can also expect to build strong relationships with members of our world class Boulder startup community, and well as stellar staff, students, and faculty here at the University of Colorado Boulder.

We need mentors with diverse backgrounds and work experience!  Never mentored before?  Today is the day to get started! If you are interested in being a mentor for the CU Boulder NVC, please contact us at
