Archived: Series A Venture Capital Financing headlines conference in New York

iCrowdNewswire - Oct 16, 2015


NEW YORK — The Soho Loft Conferences and FundingPost with Victoria Global present “Series A Venture Conference” on 21 October 2014.

The whole day conference will be held on Tuesday from 8am to 6pm at The Players Club located at 16 Gramercy Park South in New York City. Entrepreneurs seeking to raise Series A capital financing for their next growth step will converge to discuss investments with 20 top Venture Capital firms. Attendees include companies with annual revenue of $750,000 and above.

David Drake, Chairman and Founder of Victoria Global, LDJ Capital and The Soho Loft Media Group, says “Series A round, considered tough to raise, is the first serious venture funding a company raises. Many companies have limited resources to fund the next step. They are seeking to raise angel capital but end up experiencing the series A crunch.”

The conference agenda focuses on what venture capitalists look for when they seek to invest. Conference discussions will revolve on what should be in place before raising capital; the terms and conditions that venture capitalists put forward to companies; and how these affect current and early-stage investors. The growing companies can expect to learn more about expected milestones by the VCs that invested in them. Networking sessions, lunch and coffee breaks are opportunities to connect with the more than 20 venture capitalists expected to attend the conference.

The whole day conference will be moderated by Chinh H. Pham of Greenberg Traurig among others. The conference speakers include:

Brian Smiga – Partner of Alpha Venture Partners
