About the 1HNVC

This year, the Bay Area Alumni Clubs of all the Harvard schools have come together to offer a regional "One Harvard" New Venture Competition. As an expansion to the HBS Alumni New Venture Competition offered in other regions, the NorCal program is unique in its offering for qualified applicants an opportunity to present to a large group of VC and Angel investors, receive free software, products, and services, and compete for cash prizes. Applicants will also receive curated mentoring and pitch practice and feedback sessions prior to the final Bay Area competition.

Qualified startups are required to have a Harvard alumnus (of any school) as a full-time member of the management team. The company must have raised less than $2.5 million in capital and have lifetime revenues of less than $2 million.

We look forward to seeing you on March 15!
