About the New Venture Challenge

Established in 2009, the New Venture Challenge (NVC) program has been known as CU Boulder's entrepreneurial "flight simulator." NVC connects startups to the Boulder community to support, mentor, and fund innovative ideas. Boulder is one of the best places to launch startups because it resides at the intersection of a top research university, and an internationally recognized startup community.

In 2020, NVC was awarded Top 20 Largest Collegiate Entrepreneurship Competitions.
