NYC VC & Angel Event: Adding AI and ChatThursday March 2, 2017
11:45am - 5:00pm
Sponsored by McCarter & English, BDO, Crowded.com, RiseNY, ARC Angel Fund
Come meet and network with VCs and Angel Investors in NYC! This event will focus on Raising capital and new technologies available to early-stage companies, specifically AI, Chatbots and Machine Learning.
No matter what industry you are in, is your early-stage company incorporating any of these new technologies into your plan? Do investors need to see this in every company? Does it help you raise capital?
Learn what investors are looking for in 2017, the valuations they are investing at, the terms, the old, the new, the newest technologies they want to see, what's hot, what's not, and what is exciting to the venture community!
The event will kick off with a networking lunch followed by panel discussions from leading venture funds and angel groups. We will also have demos from the AI, ML and Chatbot companies in the area! We will have plenty of time for networking with the investors during the breaks and evening cocktail party, filled with amazing food and drinks.
