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.
