VCIC Advisors,

We are excited to see you this {Friday/Saturday}! Your teams have received the pitch decks. Please be aware of these rules:

  • You can coach your team until 8:30AM the day of the event.
  • Between 8:30AM and 4:00PM on the day of the event, there should BE ZERO CONTACT between you and your team. Your team must work completely independently. No outside help.
  • You will not receive pitch decks, and your students may not share pitch decks with you. At the event, you will see the startup pitches and be allowed to attend various due diligence sessions. Again, zero contact with your team.
  • You will be allowed to observe the judging process, which will allow you to give your team valuable feedback AFTER the event. Again, ZERO CONTACT during the event.

We’ll see you at VCIC! Please do not hesitate to email me if you have ANY questions in the meantime.

Best,

{include mobile phone number in case of emergency}
