What is Venture Capital? 

Global VCIC is the world’s largest venture capital competition with over 70 universities competing. VCIC is the only place where students get to be VCs for the day. Venture Capitalists (VCs) are involved in investments in startups, disruptive technologies, and are the major engine for innovation in our economy.  VCIC is a role-playing competition in which you get to be venture capitalists (VCs) for the day.  Real startups come pitch to you, and real VCs judge the best VC team.
