Atlanta, GA, United States, 2008/09/11 - The NuQuest Capital MatchPoint will be utilized by the New York Private Equity Forums to promote their Investor Symposium at the Yale Club in New York City on November 20th, 2008. Over 200 investors will attend viewing 12 selected capital seekers.
NuQuest Inc., through its majority owned web portal, the NuQuest Capital MatchPoint, announces today it has signed a Co-Sponsorship Agreement with New York Private Equity Forums, a leading deal making/capital procurement symposium.
This symposium provides selected pre-qualified companies an unmatched opportunity to meet qualified investors and potential financial partners. Principals from more than 150 active early and later-stage investment funds attend from throughout the world. The most recent forum in March 2008 was a great success with 200+ participants attending from leading private equity and venture capital firms from throughout the U.S., representing more than $25 billion in capital for early and later-stage companies.
This is the twenty third New York event in the past seven years that is designed to have capital seekers present their proposition to over 200 professional investors at the Yale Club in New York City on November 20th, 2008.
Ken Honeyman, President of NuQuest Inc., stated, “This event is a huge leap forward for the Capital MatchPoint. Co-sponsoring a “best of class” event of this magnitude, having Starlight Investments as the experienced facilitator and using the Capital MatchPoint to its fullest extent will create substantial visibility.”
Mr. Honeyman added, “Most professional investors will not even consider deals where they do not personally know management or those which have not been referred by a reliable source. The Capital MatchPoint significantly helps to remove these barriers on an automated basis and aids management's power to reach qualified investors.”
Bryan Emerson, the Managing Director of New York Private Equity Forums, stated, “Automating companies’ messages via the Capital MatchPoint will prove to be an efficiency we look forward to utilizing. Of particular importance, is the fact that our events are not primarily supported by paid sponsors. As a result, they are not heavily populated by service providers or vendors who would have no interest in investing in these companies. Because we draw from all over the country, this venue will be a most cost-effective way for presenters to meet investors from outside of their particular regions.” Mr. Emerson, is also the Managing Director of Starlight Investments, LLC, a FINRA-registered broker-dealer.
NuQuest, Inc. (nuquestinc.com) is a business development and consulting practice located in Alanta, GA.
