LA CEOs November 3, 2011 - The current venture market and how to pitch it
Thursday, November 3, 2011 from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM (PDT)
Santa Monica, CA
LA CEOs, an education and support group for CEOs presents:
The current venture market and how to pitch it - Joey Tamer, shadow CEO (www.joeytamer.com)
Getting professional tech investment (private, angel, venture, strategic) in these times is not easy.
Joey Tamer will review the current state of the venture capital market, including trends, top market sectors, and criteria sought by investors. Then she will review her successful strategies for pitching for that capital in the way that investors want to see it (not necessarily how you mean to present it).
Please join us for an intellectually stimulating presentation, conversation, and problem solving round table.
Space is very limited for this free event. This event is restricted to CEOs only. We request that you honor your commitment of attendance & punctuality.
This is a strange economic time: there is plenty of capital available for investment, along with strict criteria for “capital efficiency” inside companies. As the stock market fluctuates high and low, so do the plans for IPOs, one of the conditions for optimistic investing.
Joey will also outline alternative strategies for attracting revenue to capitalize your early stage and growing companies, so you can retain more equity and control of your company.
Joey Tamer (www.joeytamer.com) is a “shadow CEO” to technology product and service companies. Her successes include an IPO, sales of several companies at high multiples, and early stage strategic investments based on deal-flow with no loss of equity.
Her Fortune 500 clients include J.P. Morgan Capital, Sony, IBM, Apple, Hearst, Blockbuster, Technicolor, Harper Collins, Discovery Channel, Time-Warner, Agfa and Scitex. Among her many early stage and growth ventures, she includes Earthweb (IPO 1998) and iSuppli (sold for $95M in 2010).
If event is sold out, please sign up for the wait list. A limited number of additional tickets will be released 48 hours prior to the roundtable.
For your convenience LA CEOs will be held the first Thursday of the month at 8am for the remainder of the year at this location.
This is not a networking event. It is for CEOs only. Service providers will be asked to leave. Please only provide business cards upon request.
