The deadline for the HBSAB New Venture Program / HBS New Venture Competition was February 28, 2014.
This is the fifth year for the Harvard Business School Alumni New Venture Competition (NVC), which is run by the HBS Alumni Relations Office and the HBS Rock Center for Entrepreneurship. As part of this global competition the Harvard Business School Association of Boston will once again host the New Venture Program (NVP) competition in the New England Region. The winner of NVP will then compete against the winners from other regions (Northern California, Southern California, Brazil, etc.) in the global NVC.
This year, the HBS NVC will present awards for plans in three categories: most innovative, best pitch and best investment. The winners will be selected at the final presentation by crowd voting for the first two categories and expert judges for the last. Each winning team will receive a $25,000 prize.
The HBSAB New Venture Program, which will lead into sending a winner to the HBS New Venture Competition, is about to begin. Each team participating in the HBSAB NVP will receive mentoring assistance from experienced professionals, with the winning team provided the opportunity to make their presentation to an established venture capital angel group to seek funding.
