VentureCat is Northwestern University’s annual student startup competition and celebrates the University’s most promising student founders.
The program culminates in a pitch competition in which more than $300,000 in non-dilutive prize money is distributed to student ventures. The program and non-dilutive prize money awarded to student ventures is made possible by generous sponsorship from the Levy Institute, Lanny and Sharon Martin and Exelon.
Join Northwestern on Wednesday, May 25 at 6 PM CT for the Public Showcase where they will feature the six finalist teams and their pitches. You will vote to award an audience favorite prize and VentureCat will announce the finals prize winners–including the grand prize of $150,000.
The 25 semifinalist teams span five tracks – Business Products & Services; Consumer Products & Services; Energy & Sustainability; Life Sciences & Medical Innovation; and Social Impact. Learn more about the selected startups in Northwestern’s announcement here.
This event is free and open to the public to attend. VentureCat is presented as a hybrid event, with an in-person showcase on Northwestern’s Evanston campus and a livestream. Beginning on May 25, viewers can access the Public Showcase livestream here!
