Intro Who we are Our Goal Is to host Hult Venture Group Venture Capital Competition This will pit teams of students against one another to assess “real life” entrepreneurs, their business plans and a 10 minute pitch. You will then have a Q&A session where you will delve deep into their ideas and evaluate the business and decide whether or not to invest Professional VCs will act as judges and give feedback on your performance, before announcing a winning team. Our Competition Will be aligned to the format set out by VCIC (www.vcic.org) in association with UNC Kenan-Flager Business School We anticipate to generate a lot of interest from entrepreneurs, therefore during course of the year, HVG will hold “workshops” to evaluate potential business ideas that will compete in the finals. We will bring VCs to these workshops to help us learn and evaluate business plans The whole process will generate an unrivalled opportunity to network with “real” entrepreneurs, with “real” businesses and meet professional and experienced VCs We aim to hold the event sometime towards the end of Module B, but dates and details will be finalised over the coming weeks
How You Can Help We want this to be an impressive event but, the size of the competition really depends on us and how big we can make it. Depending on scale I can see us working to generate sponsorship and raise money for a charity – raising our own profile and that of Hult. We need to reach out to students, VCs and entrepreneurs – through the committees that have already been described We need to organise and produce preliminary “workshops” and the final competition We will need group members to assist in all of these areas, and in return you will garner extensive knowledge and experience of the Venture Capital industry, meet and interact with top professionals in this field, network with brilliant and creative entrepreneurs and above all, have a hell of a great time!!
