About VCIC

In VCIC student teams act as VC's, evaluate real business plans presented by real entrepreneurs and are judged by real VC's.The winners of the Internal VCIC (SCU students only) will represent SCU at the prestigious, Regional VCIC competition. If you are interested in venture capital and the world of entrepreneurs, VCIC is a rigorous and enriching training experience that can lead to valuable opportunities and connections.

Oppurtunity to Volunteer

We need volunteers for many events, including the Internal and Regional VCIC's. Volunteers may be asked to help in any of the following areas: VC Relations, VCIC Team Coordination, Event Marketing & Materials, Event Logistics & Catering, and Merchandising.  Volunteering is also a great opportunity to get hands-on experience with EC and learn about leadership roles for next year! Volunteers involved with VCIC will also have access to the event – a great opportunity to hear entrepreneur pitches and learn about the VC investment process.   

If you are  interested in volunteering, please contact us at: (Subject: EC Volunteer). A volunteer orientation (for Internal VCIC) will be held very soon.
