The NVC is an annual regional cleantech business plan competition hosted by CU Cleantech at the University of Colorado at Boulder with a $100,000 first place prize (sponsored by the Department of Energy). The NVC is a student-focused competition, for students and organized by students. Competing students form teams around a technology related to renewable energy or energy efficiency and develop a business plan that addresses the key areas of go-to-market strategy, market and industry analysis, technology development, economics, risks and team. These plans are evaluated by a group of judges made up of experienced entrepreneurs, innovators and investors, and the top teams are invited to Boulder, CO to give formal presentations to a group of judges. The top teams win cash prizes and in-kind support, with the winner taking home $100,000. The winning team also gets to compete at the National Competition in Washington, D.C. against the other regional competition winners for additional monetary and in-kind prizes, investor connections and national publicity.
