Welcome to the
2014 VCU Venture Creation Competition
If you have an idea, concept, and/or technology for a real venture and are a VCU student, we encourage you to participate in the 2014 VCU Venture Creation Competition (VCC). VCC participants learn first-hand what venture creation means and the necessary elements for moving an idea/concept/technology forward towards becoming a real venture. Those students selected as VCC finalists compete for cash prizes and in-kind services that can be used to realize the commercial potential of the respective concept, invention, and/or technology.
The VCU Venture Creation Competition comprises an undergraduate division and a graduate division. Each division offers a $4,000 first prize; $3,000 second prize; $2,000 third prize; and two $1,000 finalist awards. The finals of the VCU VCC will be Wednesday, April 23, 2014.
All currently enrolled VCU students are eligible to participate in the VCU Venture Creation Competition. It is strongly encouraged that students participate in the Competition as teams that include students across disciplines. Non-VCU students such as students from other universities, VCU faculty, VCU staff, VCU alumni, and local residents can be team members too, but 50% of the team must be currently enrolled VCU students and only VCU students can give the final presentation to the judges.
