The annual Colburn New Venture Competition encourages the entrepreneurial spirit by providing strategic and financial support to students and alumni who wish to launch new business ideas, partnerships, and performance models. Grants from the New Venture Competition can range from $500 to $2,500 per project, and grantees receive a full year of advising from Colburn School staff and faculty.

Previous winners include Brasstache, The Upnote Podcast, and Solar System Symphony.

To enter the competition, students must attend our New Venture Competition workshops. We highly recommend that participants complete the free online micro-course. Awards are announced each spring.
