One of the nation’s leading networks of angel and venture capitalists has partnered with ieCrowd and more than 150 organizations co-hosting ieCrowd’s inaugural Innovation Economy Expo (ieExpo), a national mega-event designed to provide innovators and entrepreneurs direct access to a large network of investors equipped to fund innovative businesses and innovations.
“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.
FundingPost investors will be on hand at the ieExpo event on May 9, 2013, at the Ontario Convention Center in Southern California, to lead a “shark tank” business pitch session in which qualified investors and attendees can participate. FundingPost will also be hosting a workshop on crowd-funding, one of the hottest topics in the investment and venture arenas today. Attendees will have the opportunity to speak with FundingPost investors directly and learn from experts who have successfully navigated the early stages of capital formation.
“ieCrowd is honored to have FundingPost investors and resources at the Innovation Economy Expo. This event is bringing together, for the first time, all of the critical players needed to forge new pathways to success for startups and high-growth ventures,” said Aaron Knox, President of ieCrowd’s division that is building a collaboration platform for innovative high-growth businesses and startups. “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 ieExpo,” said Knox.
ieExpo is the kick-off event for ieCrowd’s movement to create a global community of business leaders, entrepreneurs, start-ups, investment firms, and service providers working together to build successful, high-growth ventures.
