Through programs like the New Venture Competition, we are bringing leaders of the tech-industry together to collaborate with the University and help create economic growth for our community.

DETAILS: The New Venture Fair is free and open to the public. It is attended by executives, entrepreneurs, investors, academics, and other members of the community who all have a common interest in business and innovation.
