Each year, a really neat event called the Venture Capital Investment Competition (VCIC) is held. Schools all over the world hold a localized competition with winners coming out of each bracket. The mountain region competition is February 8, and it’s right here in our backyard at CU. The international finals are April 17-19 at UNC.
This is not a business plan competition. The VCIC competition is an MBA learning opportunity that features real companies, real entrepreneurs, real business plans, real venture capitalists, and real competition. It’s a pretty unique experience that emulates the real world including all the parties involved, and has some real benefits for the companies that participate.
If your company is seeking early stage investment, is willing to do a brief 10 minute presentation on February 8th as well as to take due diligence questions for 2 hours, and would like to be a part of VCIC, please contact Rich Barone at Richard dot Barone at Colorado dot edu for more information. This could help you, the local entrepreneurial community, and CU. That’s a win-win-win.
