Jan. 23, 2013 - PRLog -- The Soho Loft ( and FundingPost ( will present a huge event showcasing the biggest VC and Angel Investor Groups platform in the Big Apple on February 7, 2013, 6:00-9:00 PM EST.

Whimsically dubbed as “Reverse Venture Fair” (, this kickoff venture event for the year is taking on a fresh twist, as each firm will set up their own nook with a grand cocktail party as a backdrop. Instead of waiting for the Angel Investors to come and meet the participants, this quirky new arrangement will let the people go up and meet the investors -- giving the participants a better shot to give their pitch up close and personal. Instead of standing in pesky long queues, the participants can just simply get a number or grab a bunch of numbers from the investors they want to meet and wait to be paged in their mobile phones. Giving them ample time to go from one meeting to the next and network in the middle.

This VC & Angel Conference, which is sponsored by Credit Suisse, WeiserMazars, SocialRadius, and Greenberg Traurig, will bring in 30 of the hottest Venture Funds and Angel Investor Groups in the NYC and other areas.

Some of the NYC VC & Angel Showcase investor speakers are: New York Angels, an accredited angel investor that has invested in over 60 ventures in local technology and new media companies. Genacast Ventures, a venture capital fund focusing on new media, digital marketing, consumer Internet and e-commerce. Jumpstart NJ Angel Network, a leading angel group that invests in early-stage technology companies in the Mid-Atlantic region. 37 Angels activates the untapped capital and experience women can bring to investing in male and female-led ventures.

Joe Rubin (, Director of the VC and angel network FundingPost says, “We have been introducing the concept of angel networking to industry leaders to entrepreneurs nationwide at our conferences for over a year now. We have seen the climate change in growing the seed-stage venture economy.”

David Drake of The Soho Loft predicts, “US Angel networks ( will embrace this direction this year. The leading players in the industry will start engaging leading angel networks in the US. This direction will radically change the landscape.”

Drake adds, “The first half of 2013 will be a time when self-assessed delivery, customer and consumer communication and angel experience in quality control and supply chain operations will become key topics this year.”

In line with this, David Drake forecasts that these events will be a generally accepted tool ( to raise capital and the general public explosion will come to America in no time.
