On August 8th, 2007, FundingPost is hosting a panel discussion with leading Early-stage Investors at its “Summer Early-Stage Investors Breakfast in New York” event, sponsored by Morrison and Foerster. FundingPost has created a unique niche because while most Investor events deal with Venture Capitalists and later-stage investors, this event allows early-stage companies a chance to meet local Early-stage Venture Capitalists. For more information about this event, the FundingPost Event Calendar and registration information are available online.
FundingPost, having hosting a highly successful series of events for the last six years, is continuing this proven formula again this year. The panelists for this event include:
• Gabriel Baldinucci, VP Corporate Development, Virgin USA
• Jed Katz, Managing Director, DFJ Gotham
• Divya Gugnani, Vice President, Pequot Ventures
• Ryan Zeigler, Investment Manager, Edison Venture Fund
Following the breakfast presentation, two companies will have the opportunity to “pitch” to the entire panel of 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. Several of the companies who pitched at our previous events have raised capital. We hear of more success stories all the time…”
