Are you harboring a hard-science idea that is big, brave and bold? Are you ready to take this idea from concept to commercial success? The New Venture Challenge (NVC) at the UAE’s American University of Sharjah (AUS) can help you realize this goal. The NVC invites teams of the best and brightest thinkers from all around the world to the UAE, the home of big, brave and bold innovation. If selected, your team will work alongside world-class entrepreneurs and innovators for three days, honing your hard-science idea into a market-ready initiative, ready to take the commercial world by storm. By taking part, you will be embracing the energy and spirit of the UAE as a world-leader in cutting-edge innovation and entrepreneurship, and giving yourself the chance to become a hard-science success story.
Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council of the United Arab Emirates, Ruler of Sharjah and President of AUS, the NVC is set to become the region’s most prestigious business plan competition.
