2/7/2013 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

NYC VC & Angel Showcase

Sponsored by Credit Suisse, WeiserMazars, SocialRadius, Greenberg Traurig, Office Lease Center

The Kick-off Venture Event of the Year!

Did you ever want to meet, shake hands and give your

summary to 36+ of the hottest Venture Funds & Angel Investor

Groups in the the NYC area?

Here is your shot! FundingPost is hosting its biggest VC Showcase yet in midtown, NYC!

At this VC Conference, 36+ VC Funds & Angel Groups

will be exhibiting their firms during a great cocktail

party setting. Each Fund will have their own table setup

for the sole purpose of meeting great new companies.

We call it a - "Reverse Venture Fair" - Where you go up and meet the VCs versus waiting

for them to come and meet you.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to meet investors - make sure to bring lots of

executive summaries and business cards to hand out!

Additionally, there will be an optional Pitching Workshop from 2:30pm-4:45pm where we

personally work with you on your elevator pitch. The cost to

participate in the workshop will be $420. This Workshop includes the $135 ticket to the 6pm event.

Most importantly, it includes an exclusive advanced meeting with the participating VC &

Angel Funds between 5 & 6pm, where you can shake hands and give your Elevator Pitch

in person! There are only a few spaces left in the workshop.

Please Note that tickets are $135 if registered online. Each attendee needs their own ticket.

Walk-in Tickets will be $150.

FORMAT UPDATE! The biggest issue has always been the long lines. Well this year we are adding a

meeting scheduler feature where you can grab a bunch of numbers from the investors you want

to meet in advance with our online scheduler, and not stand on line! Basically scheduled round-robins.

We will have all of the numbers displayed on the big screen (and a mobile page for your phone).

You can just go from meeting to meeting, and network in the middle, eat some dinner or grab a drink at the open bar!

You can have #4 at one fund, #16 at another, #24 at a 3rd and plan your evening accordingly! You need to be at the table when your number is called, or you will be skipped. The numbers will stop at #60, there will be open lines & networking after that.

After you register we will send you to our scheduler where you can line up for meetings! Please note that this is first-come first-serve! Though we will have more investors, we are limiting the tickets compared to previous years.

Please read the descriptions of the funds and angel groups in advance so you know which ones you want to meet! click the fund names below for the descriptions!

Prior to the event, all companies will get a Best Practices document on how to make the most of your time when speaking to investors at this, or any event.

Clip from a previous VC Showcase

"The FundingPost VC showcase was really great. For me, it was one of the most memorable events of the past year and I remember thinking how fantastic this sort of event was for the NY tech scene. There was a great energy and optimism permeating the room. The investors were engaged and genuinely interested in hearing everyone's pitches and those who said they'd follow up actually did. In our case, we raised capital from one investor and established relationships with two other VCs with whom we are having on-going conversations about possible future investments, should the need arise." -Michael Hussey, CEO, PeekYou

"What do you want from an Investor Day? A large gathering of Angels and VCs who are seeking great companies - along with cocktails and food, that's the VC Showcase on February 7. That's why are there every year, join us!" - Jeanne Sullivan, Managing Partner, StarVest Partners

"Empire Angels is excited to participate in the upcoming FundingPost event! We've had success in finding investments through the FundingPost in the past, and look forward to more." - Graham Gullans, Founder, Empire Angels, a new Angel Group in New York City
