College New Venture Challenge (CNVC)


Congratulations to Subli, winner of the 2020 College New Venture Challenge. Subli, a peer-to-peer subletting marketplace for university communities, took home first place and $25,000 at this year’s CNVC finals. The company is led by University of Chicago students Melody Li, Luke Iida, AB ’19, and Pablo Melana-Dayton, AB ’19, AM ’19.

The College New Venture Challenge (CNVC) is the dedicated track of the Edward L. Kaplan, ’71, New Venture Challenge (NVC) that is for all currently enrolled College students at the University of Chicago. Alumni of the university and individuals not affiliated with the university are eligible to apply to the CNVC as long as they have at least one current UChicago College student as an integral member of the team. All teams accepted into the CNVC Phase II are eligible to enroll in the CNVC class, which is offered in the Winter quarter.

All returning students at the University of Chicago are eligible to apply to the CNVC and enroll in the Chicago Booth CNVC course for credit. First year students may participate as non-enrolled team members, and may audit the CNVC class (not for credit). At least one member of the team must enroll in the CNVC course. This course counts towards Trott Business Program and Dougan Scholars requirements.
