Ready to raise your first round of institutional capital? The Series A Venture Conference is the place to make it happen. This is not for start-ups, prototypes or companies raising a few hundred K in angel capital. All companies must be raising a venture round.

This full-day conference will focus specifically on what Venture Capitalists are looking for, when they like to invest, what metrics you should have prior to raising capital, the types of terms they generally put in front of a company, how it affects your current and earlier-stage investors, what milestones you are expected to achieve with that capital, and more.

The Series A round is currently considered difficult to raise. Lots of companies that previously raised angel capital, with limited sources of series A investors for the next step. If you are serious about raising a series A and taking your company to the next level, come meet, learn from and network with VCs who actively invest in series A companies.

As with all of our conferences, there will be delicious meals, exhibitor spots (2 left), top-shelf cocktails and plenty of networking time with the Investors that day.

Location: The Players Club, 16 Gramercy Park S New York, NY 10003

Time: 8am - 6pm

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.

Defiant Whisky | The Defiant spirit runs through our souls. That craving for adventure and breaking away from convention. Finding truth in authenticity. Some chase a few defiant moments. Others live a lifetime in the spirit.
<BR><BR>
Our crew behind the stills are salvage divers by trade, working at the edge of catastrophe at the bottom of the ocean. We run towards certain disaster and change fate with metal, fire, water and intellect. Our whisky is created by those same virtues. In diving and in whisky, greatness is not coincidence. It is cultivated, pushed, practiced and always evolving. We’re rethinking whisky by taking the best of Scottish tradition and combining it with American ingenuity. We’re starting a whisky revolution. Charting a new course on the journey. And we’re doing it the Defiant way.
