Smart Money Entrepreneurs Broker/Dealer Based Equity Platform pulls in front of the pack. This 12 person team, who is currently building an enterprise grade platform has brought together the who's who in the investment community for a spectacular one night event.
Online PR News – 23-October-2012 – New York, NY – SmartMoney Entrepreneurs (www.smartmoneyentreprenurs.com/events.html), following on the success of ABC’s hit TV Show Shark Tank, is bringing the shark Daymond John, Brian Cohen, and other major investors together to support entrepreneurs across the nation with an evening investor event and live webcast. Designed to demonstrate to participants how crowdfunding works, a unique aspects of this event is the way that the presenter, via Indigogo—a funding platform—is bringing the live broadcast to a wider audience.
“How To Get Funding From A Shark,” will take place in Manhattan on November 27, 2012, and will offer an insider’s view into what investors look for in a fundable startup. “Investors like Daymond John and Brian Cohen (who was the first investor in Pinterest) use their own capital to fund startups. These are the type of investors you want in your business as they are not afraid to get their hands dirty,” says Jeremy Andrews, Founder/CEO of SmartMoney Entrepreneurs (SME)—a broker dealer crowdfunding platform—who is hosting the event. Many VC’s (Venture Capitalists) and investment funds use OPM (Other People’s Money) to Invest in a company and don’t always bring that personal touch.”
One of the unique aspects about this event is the way that SME is using crowdfunding, via Indigogo, to help bring the live broadcast to expose the event on a national level. “We received many requests from entrepreneurs and other interested individuals who want to attend the event, but will not be in NYC the evening of the event,” says David Brown-Landron, Co-Founder of SmartMoney Entrepreneurs. Offering a crowdfunded webcast made sense for us, as it gives people a chance to participate, get involved in the event, and experience the entrepreneurial community.” Indigogo backers can get involved for as little as $5, or about the price of a Starbucks coffee. The Indigogo campaign runs through November 5.
Tickets to “How To Get Funding From A Shark,” start at $35, and the event will be held at AlleyNY, 500 7th Ave., 17th Floor, New York, NY, on Tuesday, November 27, 2012, 6-10 p.m. More information about the event, entering the business pitch competition, and sponsorship opportunities can be found on the SmartMoney Entrepreneurs website.
