Los Angeles VC & Angel RoundtableTuesday, October 7, 2014
Sponsored by Bingham McCutchen, Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water
Interested in meeting early-stage Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists in Los Angeles?
Our June 24, 2014 Event was a smashing success as many companies and products got funding and surprisingly many also networked with each other and found funding through other companies as well. You can e-mail me to find out who got funded and how. So now we are making our annual event into a Quarterly Event because people want to pitch, network more, and learn more as they are on their path of getting funded. Many found priceless advice and are well on their way of achieving their goals.
So please Join us in Downtown Los Angeles on October 7 at the Bingham Law Office for our next FundingPost Event. It sells out fast as we host a panel, speakers, sponsors, pitching session and then networking directly with Venture Capital Firms and Angel Investors.
Our host and sponsor, The Bingham Law Firm, just successfully handled the Disney and The Maker major deal worth $500 Million and they specialize in many fields of Law including entertainment and business.
At our Los Angeles 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!
Complimentary Drinks and Hors d'oeuvres will be fully catered and served during the cocktail party. Parking is available for a fee in the building underground parking structure.
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. It is a pitch competition with a winner selected by our investor panel and a winner selected by the audience. The winners will get meetings with the investor panelists after the event.
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 LA 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.

"I see CEO's get their PhDs in best practices for how-to-get-funded techniques. This is accomplished through FundingPost's well orchestrated and accomplished conferences - great for learning from and networking with the money sources."- Jeanne M. Sullivan, StarVest Partners
"As a result of the conference we attended in Miami, Caerus made one of its first Investments in a Florida-based company whose CEO we met because of the impressive network FundingPost has constructed. "- Zachary A. Cherry, Caerus Ventures LLC

"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
