At this NYC Event, the panel of investors will focus on Early-Stage Venture Investing:
How to meet out-of-town and local investors, pitch them (what you can and cant say!), and what it really takes to get them to write you a check! We will be discussing trends that these investors are seeing around the country, and what they are looking for in a NY area company, what you can do to get their attention, additional advice for entrepreneurs, and, of course, the best ways to reach these and other Investors. There will be plenty of time for networking with the Investor panelists and all of the other investors in attendance, both before the panel & after the panel at the Cocktail Party!
As an additional benefit, entrepreneur 1/4 page summaries will be given to the investor speakers and attendees. All of the Investors will get your company description and contact info!
Register today, as this event will sell-out and is limited!
Additionally, there will be an Optional Pitching Workshop Lunch from 11am-1pm. The cost to participate will be $350. This Lunch Workshop includes the $75 ticket to the event. During this workshop we will completely deconstruct your elevator pitch, and work with you on formulating a clean and concise 2 minute elevator pitch giving the important information that investors NEED to hear to make an educated decision on your company! We will also cover exactly what you can and can not say during an elevator pitch. Then you get to give your new Elevator Pitch in person to the Panel of Investors during the event!
