PRLog - March 12, 2014 - MIAMI -- Miami, FL - Once again, The Soho Loft and FundingPost will swing by Miami to join the buzzing business scene and present Miami VC, Angel and Realty Crowdfunding Conference. Miami continues to sizzle in the world of business. This hot city’s economy is on the rise, as it remains to be the home to a vast assortment of financial, technology and service businesses.

Consider this forum as lively meet-up for startups and investors. “The conventional way of raising money for business is not working anymore,” says David Drake, Chairman and Founder of The Soho Loft. “Many great ideas fail to fly because of lack of capital during the early-stage of the business,” Drake adds.

This conference intends to bring early-stage businesses to come in contact with investors by using novel ways of raising funds. The primary funding for many businesses is often the most difficult to raise. Crowdfunding and other innovative ways of raising capital continue to grow at hyper speed. “We are hopeful that this new method of raising capital can help the new generation of startups raise that much-needed capital they need for their business,” adds Drake.

“Early-stage VCs are always on the look out for great ideas and this event is one of the best forums for investors to locate promising new ventures,” says Joe Rubin, Director of Funding Post. “We are excited about this event. This is a fantastic opportunity for early-stage companies to meet face to face with investors,” Rubin adds.

Moderating the Crowdfunding panel is David Drake.

Speakers for the panel are:

David Halabu, Founder & CEO, CrowdSettlements

Sally Outlaw,  Founder, Crowdfund Academy & Peerbackers  Crowdcast Network

Christopher Crippen, Co-founder, Indie Angels

Joel Jelinek, Co-founder & CEO, GroundBreaker

Alan McGlade, Managing Director, Digital Entertainment Ventures

Moderating the VC and Angel Panel is Stash Jacobs of Greenberg Traurig.

Speakers for the panel are:

Eric Picchetti, Member, Miami Innovation Fund

James C. Holmes, Caerus Ventures

Rhys Williams, New World Angels

Timothy Cartwright, Tamiami Angel Fund

Jordan Levy, SoftBank Capital

Antonio Sifre, Angel Investor

David Freschman, ARC Angel Fund

There will be more time to network with the investors during the cocktails. Before the event, there will be an optional pitching workshop during lunch from 11 am to 1pm. This optional workshop will help participants on how to make that clean and concise elevator pitch.
