Competitions

Venture Capital Investment Competition

The Venture Capital Investment Competition (VCIC) offers MBA students a first-hand opportunity to learn about venture capital funding. Participating students act as venture capitalists (VCs) who have money to invest in a startup venture. Students assess investment opportunities presented by actual startups and then pitch an investment strategy to the judges who are themselves venture capitalists.

Founded at UNC in 1998, VCIC is an internationally-recognized program that attracts 175 venture capitalists, 125 entrepreneurs, and 1,200 MBA students from 60 top business schools around the world.
