The CU New Venture Challenge (NVC) is entering its sixth year and has created a reputation as the go-to program for aspiring entrepreneurs across the campus. The NVC is CU-Boulder’s entrepreneurial “flight simulator,” giving teams the chance to build a startup with support from many parts of campus along with dozens of the area’s most important entrepreneurs, startups, and established businesses.
On September 30th, students, faculty, entrepreneurs, and community mentors will gather at the Wolf Law School to hear Paul Berberian, CEO of Orbotix, speak about finding and choosing a great business idea. Berberian is an experienced chief executive and entrepreneur who has founded and run seven high-tech companies and currently heads Orbotix, a Boulder-based company that makes smartphone controlled robotic balls for gaming. The Kickoff is a perfect opportunity to learn more about the NVC, spark an idea, meet local entrepreneurs, find other business-minded students, or just learn more about entrepreneurship.
