About: Join us for the finals of the 2016-17 Edward L. Kaplan, ’71, New Venture Challenge (NVC). Throughout the day, the NVC finalists will present to a panel of judges comprising of top investors, entrepreneurs, and others. Prizes – which include cash prizes and in-kind services, such as legal and professional consulting services, and office space – have helped past NVC winners like GrubHub, Braintree, and Base CRM grow into successful businesses. The NVC is a top-ranked U.S. accelerator program and this year marks the 21st anniversary of the program.

With more than 40 events scheduled across Chicago and in other key cities around the world, we welcome you to join us as we explore solutions to big problems, brainstorm ways to scale impact, and connect with leaders in business, science, healthcare, tech, and more.

This annual festival is led by UChicago’s top leaders in innovation, including the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the Institute for Translational Medicine, the Social Enterprise Initiative at Chicago Booth, and the Office of Research, Innovation and National Laboratories. Innovation Fest is sponsored by the University of Chicago Graham School of Continuing Liberal and Professional Studies.
