"Start ups start here" is a theme of Silicon Flatirons' 2010-11
Entrepreneurship Initiative. We are delighted to announce that new
ventures will soon again start here on campus in the third annual CU New
Venture Challenge ("NVC Three"). With over $25,000 in prizes, NVC
Three is a collaboration between Silicon Flatirons and many academic
partners across the CU-Boulder campus (see the CUNVC.org web-site for
NVC Three launches with two free upcoming events: (1) a
"kick-off" on Wednesday, October 27 at 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. in ATLAS 100
(register here), featuring several local entrepreneurs, Professor Frank
Moyes, and SFC's E.I. Director Brad Bernthal; and (2) a "pitch night"
event " Wednesday, November 3 at 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. (register here), where
students and faculty describe a start-up idea in 45 seconds or less.
Attendees from any background interested in joining a team should attend
to see if an idea is of interest.
NVC Three is a superb way to catalyze hands-on student and faculty engagement with start ups and entrepreneurship.
CU NVC is open to any team with a team member carrying a University of
Colorado ID card (student, faculty, staff). Don't have a CU ID? You
can meet someone through the CU NVC events on October 27 and/or November
