30+Top Venture Capital and Angel Groups to "Exhibit" in New York

For start-ups facing the challenge of raising capital in today's economy, FundingPost's NYC VC Showcase offers a unique opportunity.

For Immediate Release: 

New York, NY – On February 7, 2012, 30+ of the leading Venture Capital and Angel Investor Groups in the New York area will present at FundingPost’s (www.FundingPost.com) NYC Venture Capital Showcase sponsored by Credit Suisse and WeiserMazars. 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” where the VCs have the tables and the Entrepreneurs can walk up and introduce themselves. As of today, we currently have 23 VC funds confirmed with more to be added, and over 30 expected by the time of the Feb. 7th event. This format allows Entrepreneurs to meet the Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors in a cocktail party setting where the investors are the ones providing information about their companies. As an additional benefit, the Investors will receive summaries and contact information for every company in attendance. Registration information is online at: http://www.FundingPost.com/breakfast/reg1.asp?event=197&refer=PR

 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:
