Join us online for the first-ever entirely virtual finals of the 24th annual Edward L. Kaplan, ’71, New Venture Challenge (NVC). Throughout the day, the NVC finalists will present to a panel of judges comprising of top investors, entrepreneurs, and others. Prizes – which include cash prizes and in-kind services, such as legal and professional consulting services, and office space – have helped past NVC winners like GrubHub, Braintree, and Simple Mills grow into successful businesses. The NVC is a top-ranked U.S. accelerator program and this year marks the 24th anniversary of the program.
Following the finalist pitches, the judges will break to deliberate, and return after deliberation to announce the prizes each team will receive.
