Entrepreneurs Learn How to Pitch to Angel and Venture Capital Investors in Miami

FundingPost hosts a Pitching Workshop in Miami where 30 start-up companies get to meet and pitch local Venture Capital and Angel Investors

Miami, FL March 7, 2005 -- On March 23, 2005, leading Venture Capital and Angel investors are set to speak and coach entrepreneurs at the FundingPost “Miami Pitching Workshop” event sponsored by Holland + Knight. While most events only allow start-ups to network with investors, this event allows entrepreneurs to pitch their companies to early-stage investors and received helpful feedback from Angels and Venture Capitalists. The FundingPost Event Calendar and registration information are online at: http://www.fundingpost.com/events.asp

After completing four successful events in the same format in New York City and Philadelphia, FundingPost is bringing the “Pitching Workshop” model to Miami to help local start-ups get the kind of constructive critiques they need to be successful in achieving funding. The panelists for the event include:
  • Andy Rose, Partner, Peachtree Equity Partners
  • Peter Hairston, President, New World Angels
  • Matthew E. Cole, Partner, North Bay Equity Partners
  • Michael Greeley, Managing General Partner, IDG Ventures
  • Moderator: Harvey Goldman, Partner, Holland & Knight

At the breakfast presentation, the panelists will discuss what they look for in a successful entrepreneurial company pitch. Then each of the thirty companies in attendance will have the opportunity to give their own two minute “elevator pitch.” After the session, FundingPost will provide each start-up company with feedback from the investors.

“These events have been so successful because both the entrepreneurs and the investors see the value of the exchange,” said Joe Rubin, Director, FundingPost. “The economy for early-stage investing is on the up-swing. Our investor panel in Miami is excited to see the new dealflow in these early companies, and the entrepreneurs are finding the investors’ tips and responses helpful for improving and refining their pitches.”
