Our MBA students recently participated in The Venture Capital Investment Competition (VCIC) Asia which organized by UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School on March 3 in Singapore. Total 8 teams from different Asian Business Schools joined to compete for the regional winner.
The competition required participating teams to conduct due diligence of two Singaporean-based start-ups by preparing term-sheets, negotiating with start-ups and making recommendation to VCs/Investors. It was assumed that each team had a $10 million fund capital to work on the deals going forward with 5 years horizon. Team could invest in one of the two start-ups only.
