Help for NYC area entrepreneurs who are trying to raise VC money

leave a comment »

This came from someone at Columbia Business School.  If you fit the bill please feel free to reach out per the instructions listed below:

I’m reaching out to see if you or any entrepreneurs you know are looking for venture capital and interested
in participating in the entrepreneur consulting club InSITE.  We’re currently recruiting companies for the spring semester and would love more applications from the nextNY community. Basically our pitch is as follows:

*  InSITE is a selective fellowship of the top MBA and Law students
from Columbia and NYU who are interested in entrepreneurial finance.
Each semester, InSITE Fellows provide New York-based entrepreneurs
with free consulting services to help them raise financing and in
return our fellows get great hands-on learning experience.

*  Fellows and entrepreneurs meet once a week to focus the company’s
strategy and positioning and craft or improve the company’s VC pitch
presentation. Presentation style, business plan, financial projections
and overall business model are also reviewed if needed. The semester
culminates with “pitch day” when the entrepreneurs are given an
opportunity to present their new pitch to angel investors and venture
capital affiliates which include leading funds such as Greenhill SAVP,
DFJ Gotham, Investor Growth Capital, and RRE Ventures. Past InSITE
company clients include Vindigo, Flavorpill, RecycleBank, Enterprise
Air and HopStop. For more information on InSITE, please check out our
website at http://www.insiteny.org.

*  We are in the process of accepting applications from New York-
based companies that are in need of InSITE’s core services. We are
looking for energized entrepreneurs who are ready to make the time
commitment to InSITE and are looking to raise funding through angel
investors and/or venture capitalists.

If you know someone who might be interested in applying, please see
the instructions here: http://www.insiteny.org/node/59.  We’d very
much appreciate any referrals you might offer.  First round
application deadline is January 5!!

Need a team to help your NYC-based startup (for no cost)?

I wanted to make all of the NYC-based entrepreneurs aware of a great program called InSITE. 

From their website:

InSITE is an entrepreneurial mentorship program that brings together
the best and brightest students from Columbia and NYU Business and Law
schools to support New York entrepreneurs in the development of their
businesses and their pursuit of venture capital and angel investments. 
InSITE’s mission is to accelerate technology start-ups through their
early-stage development, transitioning them from their seed stage into
being venture-funded companies.

A bunch of business school classmates of mine are involved in the program and I from what I have heard and seen it provides a great value for startups who need help on the business/fundraising side of things but don’t have the dollars to hire help.
