Venture Capital Investment Competition (VCIC)

VCIC is the premiere graduate competition for venture capital since 1998. It is an international program comprised of 40 events in which business school students pretend to be VCs and invest mock dollars in REAL startups. VCIC attracts the best of the best in the venture investment world. VCIC is primarily designed to educate graduate students about venture capital, but a happy byproduct of the event is a uniquely valuable opportunity, like a VC bootcamp for entrepreneurs. This event will provide you with an opportunity to understand the intricacies of pitching your future company from the perspective of a VC and improve your entrepreneurial ability. Other benefits are you get a chance to network with fellow entrepreneurs and real investors at this event, win cash prizes and a chance to represent CMU at regionals in Philadelphia.

The 2014 VCIC Internal Competition

If you are planning to participate in the 2013 competition it is time to get your team together and get ready. Team size limit is 5 graduate students only. We recommend forming diverse teams. It is strongly encouraged to form a team before signing up. Individual signups are discouraged but if you would like to participate and are having issues finding a team, please contact Thomas Burke. Spots are limited and participants/teams will be selected on a first come first served basis.

VCIC Bootcamp is organized by the EVC Club as a whole day event to help you prepare to compete in the VCIC internal competition on January 24, 2014 and shine at the external one if selected. It is required that at least 3 out of 5 members attend the bootcamp. Preparation at the bootcamp will cover VC overview, due diligence Q&A, term sheet, valuation, and negotiations.
