A team of 5 students from the Cornell Venture Capital club came in runners-up at the national Venture Capital Investment Competition (VCIC), held at the University of North Carolina.
VCIC is a competition that allows students to step into the shoes of Venture Capitalists for a day. Over the course of the day, students meet with real entrepreneurs to conduct due diligence on potential investments in their startups, and partake in simulated partner meetings with judges who come from VC backgrounds.
The team learned an incredible amount about VC funding, term sheets and negotiations. CVC hopes to field more teams at VCIC in the future, and will look to bring back the gold at the next round of VCIC. Congrats team!
