Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 15, 2012
On July 24, 2012, FundingPost (http://www.FundingPost.com) will host a panel discussion with local Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists at its "DC VC and Angel Event” sponsored by Bingham McCutchen, SocialRadius, and The Soho Loft. FundingPost has organized 200+ sold-out venture events over the past 11 years. The FundingPost Event registration and information are online at: http://www.FundingPost.com/breakfast/reg1.asp?event=204&refer=PR
Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors 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, current events such as deal terms and valuations, additional advice for entrepreneurs, and, of course, the best ways to reach these and other Investors.
FundingPost and The Soho Loft will also present a roundtable on Crowdfunding and the JOBS Act. This will give you the very latest information on this important legislation change, and what it means for entrepreneurs, Angels and VCs, and how you can take advantage of it to grow your business.

“We are excited about returning to the DC area. It’s a fantastic opportunity for an early-stage company to meet face to face with investors,” said Joe Rubin, Director, FundingPost. “Early-stage VCs are always on the lookout for great ideas, and FundingPost is proud to provide a forum for these investors to locate promising new ventures.”
"We are excited to be working with FundingPost on this event in Washington, DC," said David Drake, CEO, The Soho Loft. "As this industry is so new, most people are unaware of the newest laws and how small businesses will be able to take advantage of them. This discussion will go over the facts people need to know.”
As with all FundingPost events, there will also be pitching and plenty of networking time for the entrepreneurs to meet the investors during the cocktail party! The event will be held at the offices of Bingham McCutchen LLP. There is still space available, but the seating is limited! To register to attend, visit:
