FundingPost has hosted 180+ sold-out venture events in 20 cities over the past 9 years.
At our next CT event, the panel of investors will focus on Early-Stage Venture Investing:
How to meet investors, pitch them, and what it really takes to get them to write you a check!
We will be discussing trends in Early-Stage Investing, hot sectors, sectors that these Angels and VCs look at, things that are most important to them when they are considering an Investment, the best and worst things an entrepreneur can do to get their attention, additional advice for entrepreneurs, and, of course, the best ways to reach these and other Investors. There will be plenty of time for networking with the Investor panelists, both before the panel & after the panel at the Cocktail Party!

As an additional benefit, entrepreneur 1/4 page summaries will be given to the investor speakers and attendees. All of the Investors will get your company description and contact info!

Register today, as this event will sell-out and is limited!
