NVC Sponsorship

The NVC is funded entirely by sponsors. Besides contributing to a very successful program that prepares students for careers as entrepreneurs, sponsors benefit in three key areas:

  1. Personal access to the brightest and most energetic young people on campus who are potential interns and employees;

  2. Visible participation in some of the most popular start-up events on the Central Coast, attended by many of the regions' most successful entrepreneurs, investors, and business executives;

  3. First look into emerging technologies and new entrepreneurial ideas at UC Santa Barbara, the leading engine of innovation in the Central Coast region. 

Sponsor contributions provide funding for cash prizes for the New Venture competitors and event expenses. 

Contact Dave Adornetto ( for sponsorship information. 

Thanks to our New Venture Competition Sponsors!
