VCC Investment Cup Recap 2021

1. Chose your VC fund’s team!

Set up a team interested in the VC industry and able to help you identify suitable targets to invest in. The only requirement is it should be no more than 3-5 people and they have to be enrolled students in a university program. 

2. Identify the market you want to be active in! 

Each team can select one industry that it finds most relevant to make a good return for its limited partners. For this phase, you receive 3 options to choose from. After you prepare an analysis and derived your decision your LPs (Jury) will rate your choice with the amount of money they will initially invest in your fund and give you detailed feedback on it. 

3. Conduct your valuation and invest in a startup!

As your team already has made a choice for a specific industry you now receive a number of company pitch decks within that sector, that you have to evaluate. Here your own talent for identifying business opportunities is required! You’ll have to prepare a presentation to your limited partners (Jury) about how and why you have chosen the specific target and will receive feedback afterward. 

4. Final closing of your VC fund!

The LPs have decided and invested their capital commitments in your fund. The winning team has the highest assets under management in the final round. Afterward, we will enjoy the evening with some drinks with our jury members and participants and talk about your questions and get some insights into their day-to-day life.
