On February 11, 2009, 25+ of the leading Venture Capital and Angel Investor Groups in the New York area will present at FundingPost’s NYC Venture Capital Showcase sponsored by Credit Suisse, Shelowitz & Associates and HUB International. 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.
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:
Stonehenge Growth Capital, Tri-State Private Investors, Global Media Fund, Genacast Ventures, Chart Venture Partners, Innovation Ventures, ETF Venture Funds, Originate Ventures, Edison Venture Fund, Rudyard Partners, Connecticut Innovations, DFJ Gotham Ventures, The Verticom Group, NYC Investment Fund, WFD Ventures, Milestone Venture Partners, Intel Capital, New York Angels, Golden Seeds, OmniCapital Group, Argentum Group, iNovia Capital, First Round Capital, Jumpstart NJ Angel Network, and Greenhill SAVP.
“We are thrilled to see such an amazing response from the Venture Community,” said Joe Rubin, Director, FundingPost. “Even in this economy, VC Funds and Angel Groups are still actively looking for quality deals in which to invest. This will be the largest VC Showcase we have hosted in eight years.”
