Capital is one of the most important things entrepreneurs need to get their new business off the ground but accessing it can be daunting and confusing. There are so many options, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. How do you know which vehicle is best for you, and then how do you go about making it happen?
If you are faced with these questions, join FuzeHub and NYSTAR at New York State Innovation Summit—the premier event for organizations that want to showcase and discover new and emerging technologies that support innovation and drive business growth—October 7-8 at the Rochester Convention Center.
“Commercialization: Navigating Start-up Capital” is the second track on the first day of the two-day summit. A panel of entrepreneurs including Colin Touhey, CEO of Pvilion; Joshua Aviv, CEO of SparkChange; and Colleen Costello, CEO of Vital Vio, will share stories of the paths they took to obtain the financing they needed to start and grow their companies. Rich Honen, a partner in Phillips Lytle LLP, will moderate the discussion.
Then stick around for Day 2, for the session entitled “Funding your Innovation.” You will get expert advice from Momo Bi, Director of New York Ventures, the state’s venture capital fund; Kirk Macolini, President of business development consulting firm InteliSpark; Matt Melbourne, an Investment Team Principal at Republic, a platform for startups to raise money and Juan Cueva Senior Associate, Applied Ventures.
