VICE: Venture Investment Competition by Enventure

Hear from previous participants:

"[VICE] forced me to learn a lot in a very short period of time about how funds approach investing in startups in terms of VC vocab, diligence, VC math, etc. It was also a great way to network with like-minded individuals and I really enjoyed talking with the company founders."

"The experience of really delving deep into the marketability and promise of a company from an outside perspective was quite informative."
