The New Venture is an entrepreneurial, team-based Ivey Field Project (IFP) that takes students through the process of:

  • developing and refining an idea for a new venture
  • researching and analyzing the opportunity
  • writing a detailed and compelling Business Plan
  • creating and presenting a "Business Plan Pitch" to an external review panel or potential investors.

New Venture Students have the opportunity to apply their business knowledge to identify and develop a commercial enterprise with teams of skilled individuals. Their concept is then strenuously tested and refined through participation in entrepreneurial skill-building classes, high profile business plan competitions and coaching sessions with Ivey faculty and established Entrepreneurs-in-Residence. New Venture culminates with the submission of a written plan and a live 'pitch' to an external venture review panel.
