DANBURY, Conn. -- A team of finance students from Western Connecticut State University’s Ancell School of Business took top place at the state level of the Venture Capital Investment Competition (VCIC) on Dec. 11 and will compete in the finals in January.

Students were challenged to allocate $100,000 among business plan finalists in a separate competition, the CT Business Plan Competition. This is the first year the VCIC was open to students, and competing teams were from Western and Quinnipiac University.

Students of the WCSU team are: finance majors Zachary Goodwin of Brookfield, Thomas Chin of Sandy Hook, and Domenic Bartolomeo of Brewster, N.Y. The team is led by WCSU Assistant Professor of Finance Dr. Carol Huang.

The WCSU team will face teams from such schools as Johns Hopkins, University of Chicago, and Georgetown University in January.

“These three students have worked very hard since early fall preparing for this competition,” said Huang. “We are very proud to see that our students are capable of synthesizing what they learned in the program and applying them in practical use without formally taking a course in Venture Capital."
