Calling all student entrepreneurs and the entrepreneurially-minded!

Cal Lutheran New Venture Fair

Working on a startup idea? Have an entrepreneurial mindset but don't have a startup idea? Ever wondered what it's like to be an entrepreneur?

Compete for fun and $10,000 in cash prizes during the 2021 New Venture Fair (NVF), hosted by the The Cal Lutheran Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

This is your opportunity to share your startup idea or join a team and present to the Conejo Valley startup community online. Even if you don't have a startup idea, you can still register; tell us what you're interested in, and we'll create a team for you.

The competition is open to all Cal Lutheran students, grad and undergrad, from all schools. Bring with you an entrepreneurial spirit and passion for making a difference in the world.
