Seeking Student Competitors – UBC Pacific Venture Capital Conference and Competition
PVCC is an international competition and conference designed for two types of students: ones with entrepreneurial ideas, and ones with a passion for start-up valuations. The competition is a stage for undergraduate and MBA students to present business ideas and financial valuations to an audience of entrepreneurial leaders, senior venture capitalists, and top industry professionals from across North America. Since its first inception in 2012 with 2 universities, PVCC has grown today to over 30 participating universities around the world, with over 400 competitors and 350 conference attendees. Over the years, our keynotes included prestigious speakers from Google and popular TV show: Dragon’s Den.
This is a unique opportunity for students to ignite their entrepreneurial spirit and pitch their business ideas for potential real angel investments, or delve deeper into the world of venture capital and sharpen their financial skillset in company valuations. With mentorship support, a cash prize pool of $5,000, and feedback from experienced professionals, PVCC provides a platform for students to develop and unlock their true potential.
