La Marina


Spend a cool summer afternoon on the water with us at FundingPost’s Angel and VC Summit to be held on Wednesday, August 7, 2013, at LaMarina in New York. It’s a beautiful new water-front venue that sits right on the Hudson with fantastic views of the GW Bridge where smart entrepreneurs will present their ideas to savvy Angel and VC investors.

DVI principals have helped launch new businesses for Aetna, Anheuser-Busch, Costco, DoubleClick (now part of Google), GM, JP Morgan/Chase, IBM, Oracle, P&G and others. Leveraging our experience with leading brands, we apply the same strategies and techniques within the context of and made relevant to start-ups and small and medium businesses.

DVI practice leader Greg Verdino, who will join me at the summit and participate as a speaker, will explain how traditional executives can strengthen their digital skills and how digital native start-up founders can develop core leadership competencies to grow their businesses. Greg is the author of microMARKETING: Get Big Results by Thinking and Acting Small (McGraw-Hill, 2010) and has appeared in and/or written for Advertising Age, BusinessWeek, CNN, Fox News and The New York Times.

So if you are a smart entrepreneur seeking to raise capital, an investor looking for the next big thing, or just want to spend a cool summer afternoon at one of New York’s most exciting new venues, join us at LaMarina on August 7, from 2:00-6:00.
