New Venture Fair

New Venture Fair 2020

NVF 2020 Powered by NewCo FoundationWe're going virtual!

The New Venture Fair (NVF) is a valuable part of Cal Lutheran's entrepreneurial education experience, in which student teams share their innovative startup projects in a competitive environment. The NVF is a dynamic and exciting evening where the community gets its first look at Cal Lutheran's exceptional student entrepreneurs. 

The students participating in the Fair have been working on their ideas for several months, and their business ideas showcase their entrepreneurial spirits and mindset. They represent the brightest, most motivated, aspiring entrepreneurs on campus.

The NVF 2020 teams from Cal Lutheran's main campus, its Executive MBA in Europe Program, and LionTREPS from the Oaks Christian School.

NVF is usually a live event that lasts a few hours. This year, the competition is moving online. Student projects will be available to view for an entire week!
