Worldwide Investor Network (WIN) is holding a 2-day conference on “Funding The Best In Global Innovation” November 13-14 in NYC, showcasing 10 tech startups from around the world.
Among our speakers are Habib Kairouz (Managing Partner, Rho Capital), Ed Sim (Founder of BOLDstart Ventures), Kirill Sheynkman (Senior Managing Director, RTP), and me.
I’ve been following WIN’s growth since its inception in early 2011 and think it’s a source of companies that would typically remain off the radar of the NY investor ecosystem. My research on deal origination has found that investors who focus on less-popular geographies and source proprietary investments get superior returns.
As a way to encourage students from the NY area to attend the event, WIN is offering 50% off already-reduced student tickets, making it less than 50 dollars to attend. You can use promo code innovation to get this special student pricing.
In addition, WIN has a few spots available for the “Learn From The Best” section of the conference, where CEOs of top NYC-based startups share best practices, common mistakes, and advice on becoming a global company and expanding successfully to the US market. If you are a CEO/VC interested in participating, email ASAP Eyal Bino at eyal(@)worldwidein.com.
I’m still figuring out what I’ll present on…suggestions welcome!
