Teams of future venture capitalists — a.k.a. University of Michigan undergrads — had an opportunity to assess real-world startup firms in search of funding during the recent 2017 UpRound competition.
Throughout the event, held on October 21, the students' analyses were evaluated by leading investment professionals, providing an upclose glimpse of the investment decision-making process.
