Join us for our 5th Annual New Venture Challenge where the students from Ventura County’s display their entrepreneurial talent in our local version of Shark Tank and compete for prizes to make their businesses a reality.
Over the past several months, students from around the area have identified problems they are passionate about solving, created innovative solutions to those problems, and crafted a plan to build a business that provides those solutions.
In this year-end event, the teams from our middle schools and high schools will pitch their ideas to local business leaders, entrepreneurs and investors. At stake is thousands of dollars of prizes and the chance to make their idea a reality at the Ventura Ventures Technology Center, a local startup incubator dedicated to growing entrepreneurs in Downtown Ventura.
In our biggest and most competitive event yet (with over 35 student teams), we’re excited to have the People’s Choice category, where all attendees can choose their favorite!
