About VCOC

Venture Capital On Campus (VCOC) - Investment Challenge 2023 is the venture capital (VC) themed function designed for undergraduates and postgraduates from all disciplines in Hong Kong. Co-hosted by Hong Kong Federation of Business Students (HKFBS) and HKSTP Capital, we aim to inspire and nurture future venture capitalists via a training bootcamp and an investment case competition.

The training bootcamp will be hosted by esteemed experts and professionals of the Venture Capital industry, which guides students for the indispensable skills and knowledge to work as a venture capitalist, as well as the fundamental discernment on investment analysis and strategic planning. Through engaging in an investment planning as the executive at HKSTP Ventures, participants are given an opportunity to evaluate businesses’ potential growth, analyse investment hypotheses and eventually codify pitch decks to VC investors.
