College New Venture Challenge Kickoff w/ Halo Co-creator Alex Seropian, Founder of Bungie, Inc.
It’s the start of an exciting year for entrepreneurship at the University of Chicago, and what better way to jump in than attending the kickoff of the College New Venture Challenge (CNVC). The event will feature keynote speaker Alex Seropian, co-creator of Halo and co-founder of Bungie, Inc. For the first time, the CNVC will be offered as course for college students at the Chicago Booth School of Business. It will focus on helping College students turn their ideas into viable businesses. Information on applications, best practices, and team formation will be covered. The kickoff will be followed by a team-building event, where pizza and refreshments will be served, and will culminate with a quick pitch competition for cash prizes, judged by Alex. Join us for this fun and exciting opportunity to meet other students interested in entrepreneurship.
