Novus is a non-profit organization run by students at the University of California, Davis. Established in 2017, Novus is one of the first Junior Enterprises in the United States. Our main goal is to strengthen student entrepreneurship and give our members the opportunity to engage in innovative projects regarding Web and Software Development.
We are innovative go-getters who identify problems and design solutions in the software industry. In addition to developing computer programs, our members are actively able to apply the theoretical knowledge acquired in the classrooms to the real world.
Here at Novus we are more than capable of undertaking better solutions for your community.
A Junior Enterprise is a non-profit civil social organization formed and managed exclusively by undergraduate and postgraduate students of higher education (universities or business schools). Junior Enterprises provides services for companies, institutions and society, under the guidance of teachers and professionals with the goal to consolidate and enhance the learning or their members.Also, the members of the Junior Enterprise experience unique learning opportunities by doing professional project work on one side, and managing small-to medium-sized enterprises on the other.
By doing this they add practical experience to their theoretical skills and bridge the gap between academia and the business world. Junior Enterprises are similar to real companies, counting with the principles of corporate governance like management council and executive board.
