UVANY conference a great education for entrepreneurs

On Tuesday, Jan. 11, the Accelerator, along with Hudson Valley Economic Development Corporation, co-sponsored the Upstate Venture Association of New York (UVANY) Hudson Valley Capital Forum: Accessing Capital in the Hudson Valley. Despite the storm, the event played host to a packed house of entrepreneurs, public officials, business development experts, and venture capitalists all searching for ways to bring business development to the next level in New York State.

The event provided a great opportunity for Accelerator clients to gain access to thought leaders in the statewide venture capital community, as well as an education on how to prepare for an upcoming round, what investors look for, what pitfalls to avoid and how to identify the best investors.

Pine Street Capital Partners Managing Director Michael Lasch, also president of UVANY, speaks to conference attendees on Tuesday, Jan.11 at Homewood Suites in New Windsor, N.Y.


OCBA Enterprise Development Director Peter Gregory introduces early-stage innovators during the conference segment titled "Entrepreneurs Minute,” where business owners were given the chance to inform attendees on the services they offer.
