Running through most of the academic year, the NVC begins in the fall quarter with events that promote team formation and idea generation. During the winter quarter, teams go through an intensive period of coursework and mentoring to refine their business concepts. The NVC culminates in a series of public events during the spring quarter, where teams present their ideas and business models to a panel of experienced professionals, competing for prizes and resources to launch their new ventures.
