“Thomvest Ventures has a fantastic track record of success and them joining us at ieCrowd’s Innovation Economy Expo makes the funding opportunities even greater.” Said Joe Rubin, director at FundingPost.

Four large national venture capital funds are joining more than 160 participating organizations at ieCrowd’s inaugural Innovation Economy Expo on May 9, 2013 at the Ontario Convention Center in Southern California. The event is attracting organizations from around the region and world for an interactive, event-packed event focused on new collaborations for innovative business growth in today’s economic and regulatory climate.

The venture capital groups, led by FundingPost, one of the nation’s largest network of angel and venture investors, will be seeking new investment opportunities among Inland Southern California businesses.

“Success stories come when entrepreneurs are introduced to investors who can finance their ideas and put them into action,” said Joe Rubin, director at FundingPost. “Innovation Economy Expo will provide all the tools necessary for this kind of success,” said Rubin.

The venture capital firms include Honda Research Institute, ThomVest Ventures, Soho Loft Capital Creations, and FundingPost.

“FundingPost is a real leader in the venture world, and its work is highlighting the fact that old ways of raising money are just not sufficient today. We’re glad to have them as part of our collaborative platform and we’re thankful they’re bringing such a power-packed agenda to the ieCrowd’s inaugural event,” said Aaron Knox, the event’s organizer and ieCrowd’s Chief Partnership Officer.

ieCrowd’s Expo is the largest event of its kind, focusing on bringing together all of the critical participants in building a new innovation-oriented economy. The event is featuring 10 breakout sessions on critical topics in today’s business, education and regulatory climate, as well as a large Innovation Pavilion for interaction between entrepreneurs, investors, and policymakers.

Led by one of the nation’s largest angel and venture investor groups, ieCrowd’s event will feature a live “Shark Tank” with venture investors seeking investment opportunities.
Registration is open to anyone who purchases a ticket to the event. FundingPost will choose three entrants who register online to participate in the pitch contest in front of the venture firms.
