VCIC is a global program which serves nearly 1,500 students each year from over 70 universities in 13 countries and 3 continents. Our website hosts about 30,000 unique visitors a year, mostly students interested in learning more about venture capital.

VCIC simulates the VC investment process in an extremely condensed time period, providing students with a unique first-hand glimpse into the world of venture capital. At the core of VCIC is a creative turn of the tables. Unlike business plan competitions where students pitch their venture idea to investors, MBA student teams play the role of venture capitalists for the day and invest mock dollars in REAL startups.

None of this could happen without the generous support of our sponsors. Your tax-deductible contribution helps support a great educational program and puts your firm in good company:
