Sparkathon is a one-of-a-kind design-thinking challenge which enables students to solve some of the world's most pressing challenges. Winners are awarded with cash prizes, exclusive access to recruiters, and an opportunity to implement their solutions in a target country. The event has now scaled to 5+ cities!

PV's annual keystone event features student founders. The Shark Tank-inspired competition allows 5C students to pitch their startups to a panel of alumni judges and a live audience. Winners receive funding to invest in their company. All competitors get publicity, networking opportunities, and a jumpstart from our accelerator program.


This year's event will be held on Friday May 3rd,  2019 at 4 pm - 6 pm in Rose Hills Theater at Pomona College. Selected teams include Hex Labs (CMC), Rent The Go Pro (POM), Cash Post (HMC), Buzz Top (HMC), Text Me Tampons (SCR).
