Sterling Partners Investment Thesis Challenge (SPITC)

Sterling Partners Investment Thesis Challenge (SPITC)

The Sterling Partners Investment Thesis Challenge (SPITC) launched in 2011 with the generous support of Sterling Partners. SPITC is exclusively for Chicago Booth students interested in forming teams and working with mentors at private equity firms to develop an investment thesis. Students conduct diligence and research to recommend an execution strategy.

Through this challenge and its other programs, the Svider Private Equity Program at the Polsky Center offers students experiential learning opportunities and valuable interactions with private equity practitioners.

To learn more about SPITC, view the SPITC overview slides or watch a recording of this year’s info session on Media site.
