Interested in meeting early-stage Venture Capitalists in NYC?

Then register for the FundingPost Summer Venture and Angel Event on Wednesday, August 7, 2013

FundingPost has hosted 220+ sold-out venture events in 22 cities over the past 12 years. This is our big summer venture and angel event on the upper west side. Lots of investors, entrepreneurs, food and frozen adult beverages at this beautiful waterfront location. Its right near the subway, but we will have a bus (holds 50) from midtown to take people there!

At this NYC Event, the panel of investors will focus on Early-Stage Venture Investing:

How to meet investors, pitch them, and what it really takes to get them to write you a check! We will be discussing trends in Early-Stage Investing, hot sectors, sectors that these Angels and VCs look at, 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, additional advice for entrepreneurs, and, of course, the best ways to reach these and other Investors. There will be plenty of time for networking with the Investor panelists, both before the panel & after the panel at the Cocktail Party!

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!

Register today, as this event will sell-out and is limited!

Book Signing Also during the Cocktail Party, Brian Cohen, the Chairman of New York Angels will be giving out autographed copies of his new book: "What Every Angel Investor Wants You To Know" and Mark Peter Davis will be doing the same with his new book: "The Fundraising Rules"

Additionally, there will be an Optional Pitching Workshop Lunch from 11am-1pm. The cost to participate will be $355. This Lunch Workshop includes the $85 ticket to the event. 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! Then you get to give your new Elevator Pitch in person to the Panel of Investors during the event! There are only 3 spaces left in the Workshop.
