Interested in meeting early-stage Investors in the Food Industries?

Then register for the FundingPost Food Investing Conference (AKA IngestInvest) on Thursday, August 21, in New York City!

FundingPost has hosted 300+ sold-out venture events in 23 cities over the past 13 years.

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

The panels for the day:
Who should attend?
* Food entrepreneurs raising capital.
* Food 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 Food 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, use crowdfunding, 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.

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!

Greenberg Traurig | Greenberg Traurig advises multinational technology, telecommunications, Internet and media companies on the critical legal issues they face in the midst of sweeping technological change. We regularly represent clients in transactions and disputes relating to the procurement, sale, development and protection of their products and services. Our attorneys also advise established companies in various industries wanting to develop new ways of doing business, as well as global, national and regional public and private authorities seeking to procure new information and communications technology products and services.
WeiserMazars | Since 1921, the integrity, objectivity, and independence of WeiserMazars professionals have guided clients through the myriads of issues they confront in running their businesses and planning their financial futures. Perhaps the best indication of WeiserMazars' commitment to client service is that many of our client relationships span several generations, some dating back to the founding of our firm. We believe this speaks highly about the character of our professionals and the trust they inspire in the many clients who have called on WeiserMazars over the years.
Pura Vida Tequila | Pura Vida Silver delivers pure agave flavor and unparalleled drinking pleasure when making your favorite cocktail or the Ultimate Margarita. But purists may prefer to simply savor its untarnished agave flavor on its own – unchilled & unadulterated.
<BR><BR>
Wrap your hands around a Pura Vida Silver cocktail and you’re about to wrap your taste buds around a life altering, organoleptic experience. Well, maybe not life-altering but definitely life-enhancing. And yes, organoleptic is a word... we checked.
Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water | Waiākea was founded in 2012 as the first Hawaiian volcanic water of its kind.

Public House Wine | Public House is a wine brand for the millennial generation. A generation that loves wine but rejects pretension, that drinks wine on the go, spontaneously, and always with friends. 

As it stands, our wine culture is not well suited to their habits: bottled wine typically is heavy, expensive, complicated and spoils quickly. So rather than put fine wine in a bottle, we chose to go with a box, taking wine from an elitist to a social experience.

Each three liter box is packed with 4 bottles worth of chilean wine, and a sleeve of 10 cups to make drinking easy anytime, anywhere with anyone. And should you have any leftover, it stays fresh for 4 weeks after opening thanks to an airtight tap and vacuum sealed packaging.

In short, Public House is creating the wine culture for a new generation.
