Congrats to Albert Ho (BBA Hons Year 3) and Ng Kian Siang (BAC Year 3) whose team won at the Pacific Venture Capital Competition 2016.
Organised by the University of British Columbia and currently in its fourth year, the competition challenges undergraduate students who are interested in venture capital and private equity through a series of presentations and video pitches. Some 45 teams from over 30 countries participated this year.
Of the experience, Albert said: “We evaluated numerous start-ups in terms of their industry, business model, management team and exit outcomes, while valuing them through various methods: Comparable Companies analysis, Venture Capital Method, DCF and Berkus Method as well. While it has been a tough competition, the judges were pleased with our analysis and valuation results, noting how realistic they were.”
