This year’s New Venture Challenge kicks off on October 29th at 5:15 in the Wittemyer Courtroom in the Wolf Law building in conjunction with the launch of the nLab, the new cross-campus hub for students to explore and mobilize ideas. We are excited to have Howard Diamond as our keynote speaker this year. Howard is currently the CEO of Aventura and has a long history of building companies. He took a startup education venture, Course Technology from 0 to $75 million in five years. He built Corporate Software, the largest software reseller for Microsoft and IBM, from $500 million in revenue to $1.2 billion in six years. He subsequently was Chairman of the Information Services Group at Level3, where he ran a $2.7 billion technology group and orchestrated the largest merger ever in the software reseller business.

The event will conclude with refreshments and networking in the Cafe. Admission is free, but please register at cunvc.org.
