Most other business schools and graduate entrepreneurship programs host a single day or weekend business plan competition as their New Venture Challenge. The NVC at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business is different. It is not just a competition. Instead, it is a year-long business launch program that is recognized as the #1 university accelerator program in the nation. It features three distinct phases:
- Phase I: Idea Generation, Business Idea Validation, Team Formation, and Application
- Phase II: Course – Mentoring, Critical Feedback & Business Plan Development
- Phase III: Final Pitches
Application Deadline // Thursday, January 31, 2019 (10:00 a.m. CT)
