Sedona, AZ, United States, 2008/11/18 - FundingPost hosts event for local start-up companies and early-stage investors - “AZ Early-Stage Venture & Angel Event,” sponsored by Sedona Rouge Hotel and Spa.
On December 4, FundingPost is hosting a panel discussion with leading Early-stage Investors at its “AZ Early-Stage Venture & Angel Event,” sponsored by Sedona Rouge Hotel and Spa. FundingPost has created a unique niche because while most Investor events deal with Venture Capitalists and later-stage Investors, this event affords emerging companies a chance to meet both local Early-stage Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors. As with all FundingPost events, there will be pitching and plenty of networking time.
FundingPost, having hosted a highly successful series of events for almost eight years, is continuing this proven formula again this year. The speakers for this event’s panel discussion include:
• Laura Sachar, General Partner, StarVest Partners;
• Rob Moss, General Partner, Kingdom Venture Partners;
• Craig Ballard, Managing Partner, Pacific Southwest Ventures;
• Dee Riddell Harris, President, Arizona Angels Venture Group.
Following the panel, two companies will have the opportunity to “pitch” to all participating investors. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for an early-stage company to spend 20 minutes pitching a panel of Investors,” said Joe Rubin, Director, FundingPost. “Early-stage VCs are always on the lookout for great ideas, and FundingPost is proud to provide a forum for these investors to locate promising new ventures. We hear new success stories from companies raising capital after pitching at our events all the time!”
