What we do:
Initiatives to foster entrepreneurship 

As the oldest pre-business organization at the Claremont Colleges, Pomona Ventures' involvement has evolved over time. Take a look at both our past and present initiatives.


PV's annual keystone event spotlights student founders' innovative ideas. Inspired by Shark Tank, Sage Tank features startup pitches from alumni and students to a panel of experienced 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 at Pomona College in April 27, 2024.

A blast from the past
Take a look at our archived initiatives. They got us where we are today.


PV Studio

Driven by creative vision, PV Studio creates informational, entertaining multimedia content such as podcasts, blog posts and video series, while also hosting events for the 5C community. The goal is to establish long-lasting relationships between community members and alumni and to instill a value of entrepreneurship by utilizing multimedia platforms to share unique stories and advice from students and alumni.


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. At its peak, the event scaled to 5+ cities!
