Print PagePrint Page


Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business’ undergraduate team placed first at the annual national undergraduate Venture Capital Investment Competition (VCIC) at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Members of the Georgetown team were Tammy Cho (B '16), Evan Zimmet (B'17), Darius Babel (B'14), Shilpa Chandran (B '15), and Carlos Salgado (B '14). Teams are evaluated on how well they identify and mitigate risk, understand the venture capital process, communicate and work as a team. According to the judges, the McDonough team performed best in the role of VCs as they evaluated real startups and negotiated the terms of an investment. This win marks three wins in a row for Georgetown, including last year's undergraduate national championship.
