What is uVCIC? Student teams play the role of a VC firm that must go through the entire VC investment process in an extremely condensed time period. Teams read business plans from entrepreneurs, watch entrepreneur pitches, perform due diligence with the entrepreneurs and structure a VC deal with a real startup. Teams are evaluated on how well they identify and mitigate risk, understand the VC process, communicate and work as a team.

Congratulations, Teams!
2nd National uVCIC Competition
Nov. 16, 2013 | UNC Kenan-Flagler

1st Place

This competition gave me the rare opportunity to be on the other side of entrepreneurship as a venture capitalist. I feel that learning about the VC process has definitely made me a better entrepreneur! - Tammy Cho, Georgetown University

2nd Place

"I feel like I left UNC with a solid understanding of venture capital... the sheer amount of character, knowledge, effort, and teamwork needed in VC is incredible. I've learned more about business in these 48 hours than in my entire time at college." - Kenny Wong, UChicago '16

UNC-Chapel Hill
3rd Place

"My favorite part of about uVCIC was getting a glimpse of the VC process alongside four teammates I hadn't worked with before the competition."
