Testimonials:


The interaction between entrepreneurs, CEOs, the venture community, and investors is an extraordinary, strong, very productive mix. No conference brings it to bear like this youngStartup Ventures conference does.

Carl Berke, Founder, Berke International Group

I have participated in numerous youngStartup conferences over the last decade, and always find them to be a highly interactive, multidimensional way to think out loud, learn, understand emerging trends, and network with the entrepreneurial community. Joe Benjamin and his youngStartup forums deserve the attention of those who seek to understand the early stage venture ecosystem.

Dan Burstein, Managing Partner, Millennium Technology

Today’s summit was fantastic. We are located in the West Coast, and it’s always good to meet people on the East Coast to build new relationships. I’ve been able to meet amazing fellow investors as well as entrepreneurs. Meeting people is so very important, and that kind of  dynamic is something I feel here.  Very impressed  – I would love to continue to participate in youngStartup Ventures summits.

Renee Compton Ryan, VP, Venture Investments, Johnson & Johnson Innovation

The youngStartup Ventures conference was well structured, with a very high bar for presenters, which is the major draw for VC’s to consider when selecting events.

Looking for investors with a specific value proposition – in other words a good fit – is a needle in a haystack. And there were several needles in the haystack at the youngStartup Ventures conference.

Walter Greenblatt, CFO, Hygeia Therapeutics

We first took advantage of Young StartUp when we were just that – a three-month-old company, with three founders at the kitchen table. We presented, and youngStartup Ventures led us directly to investors that participated in both our Series A and Series B rounds. Their conferences work.

Dave Gwozdz, CFO, Mojiva, Inc.

The NY Venture Summit has been a great place to find quality growth companies. For example, I made a great connection on the Cleantech Panel with Trailblazer Capital which resulted in our leading the Series B financing for their portfolio company, EnTouch Controls, who were one of the featured presenters.

Dave Kirkpatrick, Founder and Managing Director, SJF Ventures

It’s impressive that companies can present what they’re doing in a very short period of time –  it’s a very efficient way to hear about a lot of companies quickly. The panels have good panel members addressing a lot of good issues. It’s been a good day for everybody.

It’s a great venue for networking, first and foremost. This conference introduced us to a number of people that we would never have seen otherwise, as well as collaborations with our portfolio companies and other portfolio companies. There is good energy, and a very constructive environment.

I am impressed with the quality of folks who are real venture capitalists, managing private equity. Folks actively looking for opportunities.

Wolf Shlagman, CEO, Consult a Doctor

The most impressive aspect is the ratio of venture capitalists to entrepreneurs. There are at least 50 venture capitalists walking around looking at deals, which is a really healthy ratio for the entrepreneurs, because at the end of the day it’s all about them connecting with us…The quality of presenters was very high, and the CEOs are well prepared and knowledgeable about what it’s going to take to raise money. They’re prepared for the long haul to meet and make relationships with the venture community.

Jeanne Sullivan, Partner, Starvest Partners

The decision makers are here. And I like the fact that West Coast companies are coming here, not just East Coast. Being able to tell our story to a large audience and get our name out there is what we, like any small company, really need.
