For the many applicants from colleges and universities around the world, the qualifying round of the 2019 New Venture Championship was yet another test of their drive and innovation. At the end of it all, the qualifying round judges selected 16 teams to take the next step and compete in the semifinal round of the New Venture Championship, April 11-13, 2019 in Portland, Oregon.
