LOS ALTOS, CA--(Marketwired - November 10, 2017) - The VC Taskforce second annual "Finding Your First Investor" (FYFI) conference, which will take place on Tuesday, November 14, will feature investor panels, audience Q&As, and pitching opportunities organized specifically to help start-ups who would like to get funding and are serious about talking to investors. The one-day program gives start-ups an opportunity to not only pitch to some of the most well-known early stage investors in Silicon Valley, but also to hear from the investors themselves as to what they want -- and expect -- from companies seeking funding.

"VC Taskforce has given pitch events for the past 10 years. Although pitch guidelines are always provided, many start-ups still aren't sure exactly what information investors are looking for," said June Riley, CEO, VC Taskforce. "At the FYFI Conference investors themselves will tell you what information they need so they can make informed decisions about investing in your company. You'll learn how to tailor your pitch content to make an impression on investors."

The FYFI conference will be at Hogan Lovells in Menlo Park from 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. and will be emceed by Tom O'Malley, CEO of Convetit, Inc. and Riley. There will be numerous opportunities for face-time with investors. Attendees will hear from and interact with prominent VC firms and angel groups including:

  • Band of Angels
  • Breakaway Funding
  • daVinci Capital Group
  • Digital Health
  • Golden Seeds
  • Keiretsu Forum
  • Manos Accelerators
