THE 2020 VENTURE COMPETITION IS OPEN! AND SO IS YOUR CHANCE TO WIN A PIECE OF THE $250,000 PRIZE POOL.
The 2020 Columbia Venture Competition (CVC) has five challenges but you may only enter one. The descriptions, rules, and eligibility guidelines are listed here. Each challenge will split $50,000 among the top three winners. Four of the challenges are open to students and recent alumni (five years or less from their most current Columbia degree) from any Columbia-affiliated school, including Barnard and Teachers College. The Undergraduate Challenge, sponsored by Columbia College, is open to all current Columbia College, Columbia Engineering, General Studies, and Barnard College undergrads. CVC judges will come from Columbia’s worldwide alumni community from Bordeaux to Beijing to Brooklyn and will represent diverse backgrounds and a wide-ranging set of expertise.
