University of Washington Global VCICSeattle WA USAGlobal VCIC is the world’s largest venture capital competition among top MBA students from 70+ prestigious business schools from 13 countries on 3 continents.

Unlike business plan competitions in which students pitch their own ideas to investors, at VCIC the students are the investors, and real entrepreneurs pitch to them. It is a very powerful learning experience for both parties. Add to the mix a dozen VC judges, and you have what the VCIC website describes as a “win-win-win.” Students learn (and win cash), entrepreneurs connect with investors and VCs get an early peek at some viable deals. The program culminates every April in Chapel Hill, NC, with the Global Finals, where the winning teams take home $10,000 in prize money.
