Challenge Tippie’s Executive MBA student teams as they pitch their business plans in their summer Business Integration course.

In this course, student groups use an online business simulation called Marketplace to make all the strategic decisions around starting up a global business enterprise. They develop a business plan and negotiate with venture capitalists (that’s you!) for much needed growth capital. The VC who makes the most profitable investment based on the results of the simulation earns the coveted title of Midas Touch! All VCs can choose from an array of Hawkeye gear as a thank you for their participation.

The online VC Fair is Saturday, July 11, 2020, from 7:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  Prior to the event we’ll provide an overview of the simulation and IT support to ensure that the VC/student interface works on your local setup.
