Las Vegas Investor RoundtableWednesday, December 11, 2013
Sponsored by UNLV's Center for Entrepreneurship at the Lee Business School, Half Price Lawyers, AA Printing Service, Adam Hodson CPA, Effortless Office, SocialRadius, Affordable Resumes and Business Assistant
Interested in meeting early-stage accredited investors in Las Vegas? Then register for the FundingPost Investor RoundTable on Wednesday evening, December 11, 2013 at 7pm. FundingPost has hosted 220+ sold-out venture events in 22 cities over the past 12 years.
At our Las Vegas Roundtable, the panel of investors will focus on pitching to early-stage investors, and what it really takes to get them to write you a check! We will be discussing the 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 during a pitch, and, of course, the best ways to reach these and other Investors. There will be plenty of time for networking with the Investor panelists in a relaxed Silicon Valley-like environment!
The first 30 entrepreneur attendees to sign up will also get the option to pitch their business idea in 1 minute (60 seconds) or less in front of the investor panel and receive feedback as a group from the panel. It is a pitch competition with a winner selected by our investor panel and a winner selected by the audience utilizing real-time web polling from Wedgies. Please check out the pitch winners from the previous Las Vegas Investor Roundtable on October 2013: Previous Las Vegas Investor Roundtable October 2013 Pitch Winners.
Along with the pitch competition, there is an educational and networking component to the event. All attendees will be gaining an understanding of what investors are looking for in the Las Vegas market and what our entrepreneurs are building. All attendees will be able to market themselves (including their products and/or services) throughout the event through networking with one another. Here are the profiles of several of our main sponsors: John Pinnington, Adam Hodson, Alison Otero & John Iglesia, and Benjamin Gayheart.
The last day to sign up to pitch at this event is the week before the event: Wednesday, December 4, 2013 by 12pm PT (FundingPost Investor RoundTable events typically sell out well in advance).
