New York, NY (PRWEB) October 8, 2009
FundingPost, a firm that has been specializing in introducing Entrepreneurs to interested Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors for over eight years, is honored to have it's recent NY Venture Capital event covered and quoted in the Wall Street Journal Online.
The Wall Street Journal Online article is entitled 'Six Ways to Land Venture Funding'. The article outlines the Do's and Don'ts of gaining the attention of Venture Capitalists in this current economic climate. A climate FundingPost has found to be challenging, but still opportunistic for companies backed by a well organized plan of action. The original article can be found at http://online.wsj.com/article/SB125382416318638675.html
FundingPost partner, Howie Schwartz, was referenced in the article as follows- 'Many sources - including big pension funds, college endowments and, in some cases, high-net-worth individuals - have failed to meet commitments to some funds, making this one of the most challenging environments for venture capital since the dawn of the industry,' The FundingPost director is then directly quoted 'No one is admitting this, but we're seeing it anecdotally'.
In reference to the subject matter in the article, FundingPost Director Joe Rubin adds- 'While funding is down overall, there's still opportunities for a well organized company with vision, a solid plan, and strong infrastructure." This is further evident by the fact their Venture Capital Conferences are still receiving high turn outs and the Investors are actively seeking out new deals.
Additionally, several of the VCs who spoke at the FundingPost event were quoted, such as DFJ Gotham Ventures, Greenhill SAVP, Launch Capital and RRE Ventures. The quotes from these VCs gave great advice, the Do's and Don't's of raising capital.
FundingPost's next Venture Capital and Angel Investor event in NYC will be on November 12, 2009. For more details on this event, visit: http://www.FundingPost.com/pvc
