VentureCat, Northwestern’s annual student startup competition powered by The Levy Institute, will be held virtually as student-led teams pitch their early-stage businesses to industry judges where $300,000 in non-dilutive prize money will be awarded to teams.
VentureCat is powered by The Levy Institute and co-sponsored by Lanny and Sharon Martin. Lanny Martin is a longtime trustee of Northwestern University and earned his bachelors in 1968 and his JD from Northwestern University School of Law in 1973. Larry Levy is also a longtime trustee and received his MBA from Kellogg School in 1968.
VentureCat is a university-wide competition and open to students at all levels of study. The competition is a collaborative effort between The Kellogg School of Management, The Garage, the Donald Pritzker Entrepreneurship Law Center and The Farley Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
More than 40 successful entrepreneurs and venture capitalists participate as judges.
