Cargill’s BiOH Polyols will sponsor the Sustainable Venture Capital Investment Competition (SVCIC) at the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School in March, 2008. The SVCIC is organized by Kenan-Flagler students; it’s the only MBA student competition in which students apply venture capital skills to assess businesses for the triple bottom line … profitability, environmental integrity and social equity.
At the competition, students work with real businesses to pitch cohesive investment strategies; then venture capitalists judge the students’ plans. The SVCIC gives students from top business schools a real-world venture capitalist experience as well as awareness of triple bottom line evaluation techniques.
BiOH polyols is a logical step in creating greener choices for retailers.
Now in its third year, the SVCIC is growing and generating interest among numerous universities nationwide.Winners of the competition benefit financially and build real-world experience among the nation’s top students and businesses.
Jeremy Riberdy, Co-Chair of the SVCIC says, “The BiOH business’ commitment and desire to enhance environmental and social programs aiming to improve sustainability is truly valued. The competition attracts an elite group of students and professionals. BiOH polyols’ sponsorship participation and support brings an added level of prestige.”
The BiOH team is proud to support others investing in our environmental future.
