The College New Venture Challenge (CNVC) is the undergraduate track of the Edward L. Kaplan, '71, New Venture Challenge, the premier collegiate startup launch program. Entering its sixth year, the CNVC helps college students turn their ideas into viable businesses.
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 unenrolled team members, and may audit the CNVC class (not for credit). It is highly encouraged that applications are submitted as a team with cross-functional expertise. At least one member of the team must enroll in the CNVC course. This course counts towards Trott Business Program and Dougan Scholars requirements.
