Student teams must apply to take part in the Sterling Partners Investment Thesis Challenge. The complete online application must be submitted by January 8, 2018, at 12 p.m. (noon). The application will ask you to provide information (including a resume) on each team member, identify the title and sector focus of your proposal, and upload the complete investment thesis proposal.

Your investment thesis proposal not exceed 10 slides. It should summarize the investment thesis your team wishes to investigate; explain why this particular thesis was selected; introduce your team members and the experience you each bring; and outline a strategy for developing your full investment thesis (including specific milestones). Sample proposals are available for review in the Polsky Center upon request. Selection will be based on the willingness of one of the hosting private equity firms sponsors to provide support and mentorship to the team. Please review the information available on this website about eligibility before applying.
