Venture Capital Demystified (BDPA New York)

BDPA New York, 5th-largest chapter in the nation, is sponsoring its final program meeting of the year with a focus on Venture Capital Funding.  New York City is the economic capital of the world with a tremendous impact on the information technology industry.  According to Garett Sloane's article "NYC beats out Beanton in VC deals, dollars " he states "In the third quarter, 86 start-ups in the state -- the vast majority in the city -- raised $831 million in venture capital, topping Boston's 83 deals worth $710 million."

Many BDPA members either own their own start-up business or plan to do so after their current stint in Corporate America.   As such, this panel discussion,  'Venture Capital Demystified', will provide you with gems of wisdom to bring your business to the next level.

Some of the questions that will be answered during this panel discussion include:
  • How do I approach a VC?
  • What types of companies that get funding?
  • How important is a business plan?
