Venture Capital Investment Competition & the University of San Francisco

Posted on February 20, 2008


The Venture Capital Investment Competition (VCIC) is a unique opportunity for university students to act as investors, instead of the standard competition where students present their business plans.

In an obvious attempt to be a homer, I’d like to congratulate the University of San Francisco Graduate Student Team for their outstanding performance at the February 8th event, finishing in 2nd place with universities like USC and UC-Irvine in the field.

Mark Cannice is the Executive Director and Founder of the USF Entrepreneurship Program. Over the past couple of years, Mark and his colleagues have quickly transformed the department from a great little secret to an outstanding program for developing entrepreneurs in the fertile Silicon Valley environment.

Mark compiles the Venture Capital Confidence Index, and reported his most recent findings here.
