Then register for the FundingPost event on Thursday, August 25, 2011, in Chicago!

FundingPost has hosted 185+ sold-out venture events in 20 cities over the past 9 years.

If you are an Investor, Company, Service Provider, or Member of the Press in consumer products, services, consumables or packaged goods... either on the creative side or the technology that supports it, such as logistics, tracking, shipping, or sales, this is a Must-Attend event!

The panels for the day:
Who should attend?
* Consumer Products entrepreneurs raising capital.
* Consumer Investors (VCs, Angels & Corporate) to meet companies and speak on our panels.
* Exhibiting Companies to demo their stuff for partners and investors.
* sponsors to moderate panels, exhibit and meet Consumer Products companies and investors.


We will be discussing trends in Early-Stage Investing, things that are most important to Investors when they are considering an Investment, the best and worst things an entrepreneur can do to get their attention, grow their business, additional advice for entrepreneurs, and, of course, the best ways to reach these and other Investors.

Breakfast Workshop:
Additionally, ALL companies can attend the Pitching Workshop Breakfast from 8am-10am. During this workshop we will completely deconstruct your elevator pitch, and work with you on formulating a clean and concise elevator pitch giving the important information that investors NEED to hear to make an educated decision on your company!

There will be plenty of time for networking with the Investor panelists, both before & after the panels and at the networking Lunch and Cocktail Party!

Exhibitors
There will also be several exhibitors at this event - if you have an amazing product you want to show off, you can have a exhibit booth at the event. This room will be filled with talent - Bring your best stuff! Exhibiting Companies will give a 2 Minute Elevator Pitch in person to the Panel of Investors during the event! There is only 1 space left for Exhibitors.
