On February 3, 2011, 30+ of the leading Venture Capital and Angel Investor Groups in the New York area will present at FundingPostís NYC Venture Capital Showcase sponsored by Credit Suisse. While most venture events allow start-ups only to listen to a panel discussion or to pitch to investors, this event is a "Reverse Venture Fair." This format allows Entrepreneurs to meet the Venture Capitalists and Angels in an informal cocktail party setting where the investors are the ones providing information about their companies. As an additional benefit, the investors will receive summaries of every company in attendance. Registration information is on-line.
During the evening cocktail party, VC Funds and Angel Groups will be exhibiting their firms. Each Fund will have their own table set up for the sole purpose of meeting great new companies seeking capital. Exhibiting firms include:
ARC Angel Fund, i-Hatch Ventures, Security Growth Partners, Trident Capital, Jumpstart NJ Angel Network, Launch Capital, ff Asset Management, NYC Seed, Tri-State Private, Investors Network, Genacast Ventures, Osage Partners, Golden Seeds, GSA Venture Partners (Greenhill SAVP), Originate Ventures, Vital Financial, Connecticut Innovations, Long Island Angel Network, Angel Investor Forum, Clove Hitch Partners, Kestrel Asset Management, NYC Investment Fund, StarVest Partners, Innovation Ventures, Metamorphic Ventures, Liquidity Works, Vencon Management, Zelkova Ventures, Radius Ventures, Edison Venture Fund
