New Venture Fair

New Venture Fair 2021

We're planning for a virtual event!Cal Lutheran New Venture Fair

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 2021 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!

NVF startup ideas will be open to the community on April 20.

Join us online to learn about their ideas, engage through Q&A, and vote for your favorites.

Cast your vote for the People's Choice Award anytime from April 20 - April 28.

Then, join us live for Awards Presentation and Virtual Demo Day on April 29 at 9 AM (PT).
