Boston Investor RoundtableWednesday, April 30, 2014
Sponsored by Bingham McCutchen, SocialRadius
Interested in meeting early-stage accredited investors in Boston? Then register for the FundingPost Investor RoundTable on Wednesday evening, April 30, 2014 at 4pm. FundingPost has hosted 260+ sold-out venture events in 23 cities over the past 13 years.
At our Boston 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 during the cocktail party!
The first 30 entrepreneur attendees to sign up will also get the option to pitch their business idea in 1 minute 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.
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 Boston 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.

"The Las Vegas Investor RoundTable of December 2013 was a great event because I got to know many talented entrepreneurs in Las Vegas that I would not have met in person otherwise. After the event, I made an investment of $25,000 in a seed idea that is looking very promising! I am looking forward to future events and future investments in Las Vegas entrepreneurs."- Don Sorensen, Las Vegas Angel Investor
