Lab Venture Challenge (LVC)—which will take place virtually November 3-4, 2021—funds the university's top innovations that address a commercial need, have a clear path to a compelling market, and enjoy strong scientific support.
The LVC competition is open to the public and funded by Venture Partners at CU Boulder and the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (through its Advanced Industry Program). In the last three years alone, more than 86 commercially-promising projects at CU Boulder have received funding through LVC. Through this funding, 39 new startup companies have been launched, and collectively they have raised over $90 million to date in follow-on financing. LVC demonstrates a powerful way to advance innovative research and translate it into impactful business ventures.
This year’s Lab Venture Challenge will be hosted over two days, with Biosciences pitches taking place on Wednesday, November 3 and Physical Sciences & Engineering pitches on Thursday, November 4.
This showcase is the can't-miss opportunity to see CU Boulder's next wave of breakthrough innovations.
Featured researchers and technologies:
Lab Venture Challenge is free and open to CU Boulder students, faculty, staff, alumni, business/industry partners and investors. You may attend one or both days.
