The New Venture Competition provides a unique opportunity for HBS students—working with classmates and others—to investigate and launch a new business venture. In order to provide an experience that is both educational and effective, a comprehensive set of policies and procedures have developed around the Contest. Important note: RC teams (i.e. any team with a first-year, RC, student) may not enter the New Venture Competition with the same idea used for their FIELD III project.
All participants—HBS students and others—are responsible for knowing and following this full set of rules. Note that these rules are subject to change without notice.
