FundingPost (FundingPost.com) is hosting a panel discussion with local Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists at its "Philadelphia VC and Angel Conference," sponsored by Ameritech and RMSC Law. FundingPost has organized 170+ 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 Philadelphia event on July 29, 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.

• Michael Wu, Principal, Chart Venture Partners
• Carter Caldwell, Principal, Cross Atlantic Capital Partners

"We are excited to be returning to the Philadelphia area. The FundingPost VC & Angel events 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 happy 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 both before the event and after the panel at the Cocktail Party! There is still space available, but the seating 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.
