FundingPost is proud to announce its “NYC Angel & Venture Conference” sponsored by Duane Morris, to take place August 11, 2009. After hosting two highly-successful New York events: The Feb. 11, 2009, NYC VC Showcase, featured in Smart Money Magazine and Entrepreneur Magazine, and the sold-out May 15, 2009, Early-Stage Venture & Angel Conference featured on TheDeal.com, FundingPost is excited to be organizing its third New York event of the year. The upcoming conference will be repeating its venture and angel event series, which includes a panel discussion, elevator pitches, and plenty of networking opportunities to meet the VCs and Angels. The panel of investors will address trends in early-stage investing, hot sectors, the best and worst ways to get their attention, as well as additional advice on how to grow your business during the recession.
Speakers for the event include:
• Rohit Bodas, Director of Strategic Investments, Hartford Ventures
• Konstantine Drakonakis, Director, Launch Capital
• James D. Robinson, IV, Managing Partner, RRE Ventures
• Jeffrey M. Krauss, Managing Member, Psilos Group Managers
• Brian Hirsch, Managing Director, GreenhillSAVP
• Jalak Jobanputra, Senior VP, NYC Investment Fund
• Elad Yoran, CEO and Founder, Security Growth Partners
• Mark Peter Davis, Associate, DFJ Gotham Ventures
“We received great feedback from our last New York events and are looking forward to returning and introducing a new panel with more deal-seeking seed and early-stage Venture Capitalists,” said Joe Rubin, Director, FundingPost. “In addition to general early-stage advice, the panel will also be addressing the topics of capital efficiency and how to grow your company on a bootstrap, budget-essential information for any entrepreneur in the current economic environment.”
