"The venue, the audience, the candor has been terrific, and I've really been very impressed with the caliber of the dialogue, and the exchange between the entrepreneurs and the investors, and I found it to be head and shoulders one of the best conferences I've participated in. " Warren Haber, Crossbar Capital.
"We’ve made about 20 investments in technology companies, including one from a previous FundingPost conference. We found the forum very conducive to dealmaking, good information flow, and just a good way to network between founders and funders." Ron Thompson, Corporate Angels.
"A great event, I know that I've invested in at least one deal associated with FundingPost events, and it’s a great networking opportunity with the founders and the VCs that are there. I'm looking forward to this one!" Jon Filla, Houston Angel Network.
"I found the company mix very strong, in terms on the obvious effort that went into screening. I thought it was among the unique formats that I've been to in the venture environment and I’m pleased to have been invited back to participate." Toby Moskowitz, Heritage Equity Partners.
