The Venture Capital Investment Challenge (VCIC) is an international competition run by the Kenan-Flagler Business School of the University of North Carolina that started in 1998 and involves 78 universities. In this competition, students play the role of VCs. Real startups will pitch to you and you’ll decide which one to invest in while VCs judge your performance.
An internal competition of talented Kellogg students was held to choose a team to represent the school at the most recent VCIC. The finalist teams spent several weeks participating in workshops and mentoring sessions with professors Pete McNerney and Mitchell Petersen before moving on to represent Kellogg in the regional final leading up to the international competition.
Congratulations to Eren Bozbag, Lucas Cooper, Noy Franco, Emily Jiang, Christina Kappil, and Kyle McNulty who represented Kellogg at the 2023 VCIC Northeast Regional Championships in February and won first place! They will go on to represent Kellogg again at the Global Finals competition at the end of March.
