VCIC’s Most VC-Backable Startup Global Search
Not a pitch contest!
VCIC’s Most VC-Backable Startup Global Search is a network of 20 due diligence screening events taking place in 6 countries (see map). At each event, only three (3) regional finalist startups will be selected to pitch in-person to six student VC teams and 8-12 investors, who perform the due diligence. The Most VC-Backable Startup of each regional finals event will be the one that receives the most term sheets from student teams as well as the judges’ endorsement, earning the opportunity (but not guarantee) of being invited to the global finals.
