The Sterling Partners Investment Thesis Challenge (SPITC) launched in 2011 with the generous support of Sterling Partners. SPITC encourages students to form teams to conceive and propose an original investment thesis they wish to work on. A limited number of teams will subsequently be selected to work with mentors at private equity firms over a span of three months, during which time they will develop an investment thesis based on proprietary research and recommend an execution strategy.

Through this challenge and its other programs, the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation aims to offer students experiential learning opportunities and valuable interaction with actual practitioners.
