Philadelphia, PA March 12, 2009 - On March 25, 2009, FundingPost (www.FundingPost.com) will host a panel discussion with leading Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors at its "PA Early-Stage Venture Event," sponsored by Wolf Block. FundingPost has organized over 150 sold-out venture events over the past eight years.

Despite the bleak economy, there are still investors looking for quality deals. Adding a slightly new twist to its typical regional events, FundingPost is bringing in out-of-town investors who are interested in Pennsylvania area companies.

"We are excited about our next event in Philadelphia," said Joe Rubin, Director, FundingPost. "I am happy to be showing the wider scope of these out-of-town investors to the local entrepreneur community, as they are investors whom they would typically not get to meet."

For the many entrepreneurs wondering what it takes to secure venture capital financing during these challenging times, investors will be offering valuable insight during the panel discussion addressing trends in early-stage investing, hot sectors, the best and worst ways to get their attention, as well as additional advice on how to grow your business during the recession. As with all FundingPost events, there will be pitching and plenty of networking time for the entrepreneurs to meet the investors.

Venture and Angel Speakers for this event include:

Todd Pietri, General Partner, Milestone Venture Partners
Maneesh Sagar, Managing Director, CT Innovations
Howard Morgan, Partner, First Round Capital
Jeanne Sullivan, Partner, Starvest Partners
John Ason, Angel Investor
Christian Mayaud, Managing Director, The Verticom Group
