On September 16, 2008, FundingPost is hosting a panel discussion with leading early-stage investors at its "New York Venture Capital Event," sponsored by Morrison and Foerster. FundingPost has completed 130+ sold-out venture events over the past seven years, and is proud to announce yet another sold-out Venture Capital event in New York. Many entrepreneurs wonder what it takes to secure venture capital financing. This upcoming event will include a panel discussion where accredited investors will address trends in early-stage investing, hot sectors, the best and worst ways to get their attention, as well as give additional advice regarding methods of reaching investors. As with all FundingPost events there will be pitching and plenty of networking time for the entrepreneurs to meet the investors.
Speakers for this event include:
- Sita Vasan, Senior Manager, Strategic Investments, Intel Capital;
- Morgan Rodd, Jr., Co-Managing Partner, ArrowPath Venture Partners;
- Ryan Ziegler, Investment Manager, Edison Venture Fund;
- Habib Kairouz, Managing Partner, Rho Ventures;

Angel investors and early-stage VCs are always on the lookout for great ideas, and FundingPost is proud to provide a forum for seed investors to locate promising new ventures. This event allows early-stage companies a chance to meet local early-stage Venture Capitalists who are actively investing. "We're thrilled with the turnout by both the investors and entrepreneur community," said Joe Rubin, Director, FundingPost. "The event is sold out over a week early, showing the venture industry is still strong even during a down economy. We're looking forward to more success stories coming out of the event next week!"
