FundingPost is hosting a panel discussion with local Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists at its "Boston VC and Angel Conference," sponsored by Bingham McCutchen LLC. FundingPost has organized 165+ sold-out venture events over the past nine years. Leading Venture Capital and Angel investors are set to speak and coach entrepreneurs at the FundingPost Boston on May 19, 2010.
Top Venture Firms will gather at FundingPost's upcoming event to discuss the trends in Early-Stage Investing, hot sectors, sectors that these Angels and VCs look at, things that are most important to them when they are considering an Investment, the best and worst things an entrepreneur can do to get their attention, additional advice for entrepreneurs, and, of course, the best ways to reach these and other Investors.

“We are delighted to be returning to the Boston area. The Pitching Workshops have been successful because both the entrepreneurs and the investors see the value of the exchange,” said Joe Rubin, Director, FundingPost. “The economy for early-stage investing is improving. Our investor panels are excited to see the new dealflow in these early companies, and the entrepreneurs are finding the investors’ tips and responses helpful for improving and refining their pitches.”
As with all FundingPost events, there will be pitching and plenty of networking time for the entrepreneurs to meet the investors! There is still space available, but the event is limited!
With over 9,500 CEOs and 650 Venture Capital Funds attending events in 19 cities nationwide; a printed Dealflow Magazine; and a deal-exchange website with over 7,600 VC and Angel Investor members and over 125,000 companies, that has, on average, made an introduction of an Investor to an Entrepreneur every business day since its inception, FundingPost believes that it is important to reach investors in every medium possible - both online and offline. FundingPost (fundingpost.com) has been responsible for Millions of dollars in Venture Capital Raised!
