The Intercollegiate Investment Challenge 2017

At Carnegie Mellon University, Hosted By Scottie Ventures



The Scottie Ventures (SV) team is excited to host the 1st Annual Intercollegiate Investment Challenge at Carnegie Mellon University. The Intercollegiate Investment Challenge is a venture capital competition that is open to both undergraduate and graduate students. During the competition, teams of students will hear multiple investment pitches that have been prepared by entrepreneurs. The teams will then conduct due diligence, select an investment opportunity, prepare a term sheet, and negotiate with an entrepreneur. The quality of each team’s diligence, rapport-building, and negotiation is judged by a panel of experienced investors. The competition is designed to replicate a compressed VC decision making process.
