We're doing it again! Our giant Summer Venture and Angel Event on Thursday, August 7, 2014 at the beautiful La Marina NYC!
FundingPost has hosted 270+ sold-out venture events in 23 cities over the past 13 years. This is our big summer venture and angel event on the way upper west side, Washington Heights area on the Hudson River. Lots of investors, entrepreneurs, food and frozen adult beverages at this beautiful waterfront location. Its right near the subway, but we will have a bus (holds 50) from midtown to take people there!
At this NYC Event, we will be showcasing some of the newest early-stage venture funds & angel groups in the NYC area! The panels of seasoned and newer 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!
Additionally, there will be an Optional Pitching Workshop Lunch from 11am-1pm. The cost to participate will be $355. This Lunch Workshop includes the $80 ticket to the event. During this workshop we will completely deconstruct your elevator pitch, and work with you on formulating a clean and concise 2 minute elevator pitch giving the important information that investors NEED to hear to make an educated decision on your company!
