We challenge you to change the world!

The New Venture Design Experience is a project at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez campus that facilitates multidisciplinary teamwork addressing a design challenge throughout an academic year. Collaborating on a design challenge, students engage in market research, identify opportunity areas (consumer problems) and propose ideas (solutions) to develop into working prototypes. A design challenge is a broad topic area that reflects current problems in society. Design challenge topics will guide the students towards the development of products or services for the benefit of society.

We are currently receiving applications for the New Venture Design Experience. Cohort 6 will begin in January 2021, not in August 2020 as previously announced. We apologize for the inconvenience that this might cause.
