Learn to think like a venture capitalist by competing in the VCIC, an annual international venture capital competition run by UNC Kenan-Flagler. Unlike business plan competitions in which students pitch their own ideas to investors, in the VCIC students act as investors, and real entrepreneurs pitch to them. Darden previously hosted the Southeast Regional and sends its own team to compete in the VCIC regional on other university campuses. Visit the VCIC website for full details about the competition.
