The field is set for the international finals of the annual Venture Capital Investment Competition (VCIC) at the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School.

The finals are set for April 12-14 at Chapel Hill. The program is put on by the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies.

Six teams from as far away as France will be competing not in presenting business plans but for due diligence and investment performance.

The finalists include MBA students who have been formed into fictional venture capital partnerships.

The six schools represented are: Brigham Young, University of Chicago, University of Colorado, Harvard Business School, University of Maryland, University of Virginia, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Southern California and INSEAD, a business school from France. INSEAD won the VCIC competition in Europe.

More than 40 teams competed for the chance to participate in the finals.

The teams will hear presentations from actual entrepreneurs and companies.

Mark Heesen, president of the National Venture Capital Association, will also speak on Friday.
