VentureCat's Impact

VentureCat is much more than a business plan competition — the event represents the culmination of the many layers of entrepreneurial resources and programming at Northwestern that impact the trajectory of student founders both during and beyond their time at Northwestern.

Every year, VentureCat showcases the most promising student startups coming out of Northwestern, and provides them with resources to take their ventures to the next level. These students are proudly solving the problems that they see in the world, and can't wait to share their progress with the community”

Mike Raab, Executive Director of The Garage
