About the Wolff New Venture Competition
The Wolff New Venture Competition features live pitches by the five top startups coming out of UConn each year.
The legwork for the Wolff New Venture Competition begins in March, where 10 startups are hand-selected by an independent panel to participate in the CCEI Summer Fellowship Program. Here, CCEI works to strengthen the support for the university’s top entrepreneurial teams and take them beyond business concepts and towards market readiness.
After this eight-week accelerator, the teams present their final pitches to a panel of judges and the top five startups are selected to compete in the Wolff New Venture Competition; chosen on a basis of venture viability and value-added to the market. A panel of venture experts then decides which team deserves the Wolff New Venture Prize and the $20,000 winnings accompanying it.
The 2021 Wolff New Venture Competition will be held on October 25, 2021, from 5-7:30 pm. This event is open to the public. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
