Launching in 2018-19, the Alumni New Venture Challenge (ANVC) track will be the fifth track of the Polsky Center’s nationally-ranked Edward L. Kaplan, ’71, New Venture Challenge. The Alumni New Venture Challenge (ANVC) is open to all University of Chicago alumni who are in the process of launching and developing their startup ventures. In this first year, the ANVC will launch in five regions: East Coast (New York City), Midwest (Chicago), West Coast (Bay area), Europe (London), and Asia (Bangalore). It will follow a similar rigorous, milestone-driven structure that is found in all tracks of the existing NVC. Semifinals will be hosted in each local region and the finals will be held in Chicago on May 2, 2019.
