May 2-4, 2013 | AT&T Conference Center | Austin, TX
In 2010, the Moot Corp Competition changed its name to the Global Venture Labs Investment Competition (VLIC), and repositioned itself as “The Super Bowl of Investment Competitions.”
Rob Adams, Director of the Jon Brumley Texas Venture Labs, explained the name change as, “reflective of the true nature of what Moot Corp had turned into, a forum where graduate students from around the world launch their ventures by raising capital. This competition is far from moot, and parallels the real-world process and realities of developing and launching a venture-backed company. This renaming and repositioning aligns the competition with that mission.”
