Ultra Light Startups Message Board › InSITE Applications
|A former member||
I'm reaching out to see if you or any entrepreneurs you know are looking for venture capital and interested in free consulting from InSITE. We are currently accepting company applications for the fall. Our basic pitch is as follows:
• InSITE is a selective fellowship of top MBA and Law students from Columbia and NYU, who have experience or interest in venture capital or entrepreneurship. Each semester, InSITE Fellows provide New York-based entrepreneurs free consulting to help them raise financing.
• InSITE 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, Milestone Venture Partners, and RRE Ventures. Past InSITE company clients include Vindigo, Flavorpill, RecycleBank, Enterprise Air and HopStop.
• 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.
Please forward this message to any companies that are looking for venture or angel funding. For more information on InSITE or the application process, please check out http://www.insiteny.o.... All questions can be directed to email@example.com. We look forward to seeing the great companies in the New York community and helping you to achieve your goals. The deadline for fall applications is September 4, 2009.
