The Venture Capital Investment Competition team from Indiana University Bloomington won first place at Friday's Mid-Atlantic Regional Final at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. With the win, IU's team advances to the VCIC International Finals, which will be held in April at the University of North Carolina.

Participating from the IU Maurer School of Law were third-year law and Master of Business Administration students Cole Parker and Jonathan Rinehart. Second-year MBAs Cindy Warren, Kate Lehman and Benjamin Trumbull represented the Kelley School of Business. The team beat out competitors from Carnegie Mellon, Georgetown, Maryland, Rochester, and Vanderbilt universities to take home top honors.

VCIC began at UNC in 1998 as an educational event for MBAs to learn about venture funding. Now in its 11th year, VCIC has evolved into a marketplace for entrepreneurs seeking investors and a training ground for future venture capitalists.
