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 music, digital media, data storage, television, video games, streaming media, film, compression technology, design, animation... either on the creative side or the technology that supports it, this is a Must-Attend event! Note: There are only 8 tickets left!

The panels for the day:
Early-Stage Media Investing: How to meet investors, pitch them, and what it really takes to get them to write you a check!
and
Growing your Media Entertainment business: Protecting, selling and partnering

Who should attend?
* Media and Entertainment entrepreneurs raising capital.
* Media 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 Media and Entertainment 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!

Keynote
The session will cover practices and information early stage companies can use to set themselves up for future success. Ambrose has worked with over 1,000 startā€up companies over the past 15 years. In this presentation, John Iorillo, Co-CEO of Ambrose, discusses his experience in areas such as employee selection and management, human capital budgeting, vendor selection, and more. The session focuses on practical solutions early stage companies can implement easily that will form a solid foundation for future development and growth.

Cocktail Party
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. You can have whatever you want in your booth (within reason!) even a projector and a screen to show off your materials or tech. 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 are 0 spaces left for Exhibitors.
