PRESS RELEASE Capital On Stage London 2015
“The unconventional funding conference returns to London on June 3rd, hosted by the law firm CMS.
Switzerland. Zurich, May 4th, 2015. On Tuesday, June 30, the unconventional investment event Capital On Stage will return to London at the offices of the renowned law firm CMS.
“Matching capital with entrepreneurs to find the best possible partnership is a dating game, not a beauty pageant. It makes as much sense for investors to be pitching to entrepreneurs as vice versa.” - Andrew Cleland - Managing Director at Comcast Ventures
Highly successful, and held annually in America, Europe, Middle East and Singapore, the conference brings together top-tier investors and tech startup founders, but turns the tables; Venture capitalists pitch to selected founders actively seeking funding. Investors are expected to pitch their views on the market, their investments expectations and what additional services they will bring to the table other than cash.
Hadley Harris, Founding partner at ENIAC Ventures explains "Given that all of the Eniac general partners spent the majority of our careers pitching VC’s as entrepreneurs, we’re especially welcoming of the innovative concept Arjen and team have put together.”
The conference also guarantees startup founders to get two private meetings with investors of their choice.
“It's important that founders vet investors as carefully as VCs evaluate startups.” says Nic Poulos, principal at Bowery Capital. “Good VCs will accelerate the growth of your business from day one in a tangible way--be it help with product or customer intros--and serve as the partner you want to call first on any issue.
Confirmed investors for London 2015 include: Beringea, Mercia Fund, and more will be announced soon.
Partners of the Capital on Stage conference are CMS, Aldryn and DealMarket.
The conference is invite only. Startup founders actively looking for funding between $500K - $10M can request an invitation via http://j.mp/coslon15pr
