New Venture Fair
New Venture Fair 2020
Wednesday, May 6, 2020
4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Gilbert Sports & Fitness Center, Gilbert Arena
Thousand Oaks Campus
The New Venture Fair (NVF) is a valuable part of Cal Lutheran's entrepreneur 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 NVF will highlight the startup ideas of many student teams in a trade show-style event, complete with product demonstrations, elevator pitches and marketing flyers. 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 will begin at 4:00 p.m. and run through 7:00 p.m. All attendees will be invited into Gilbert Arena, where each student team will have a display booth. Attendees will circulate through the booths, learn more about each startup, and and vote for their favorite. A panel of "secret" expert judges also will be visiting each booth to evaluate the teams. Community and judge feedback will be used to decide on awards for student teams.
Awards will be presented at the end of the evening.
4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.: New Venture Fair and Voting
7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.: Reception and Award Announcements
Complimentary beverages will be served during the fair and a light dinner during the reception for those that registered.
Event registration will open in April 2020. Stay tuned.
Congratulations to the 2019 winning teams!
