Interest: Entrepreneurs are tired of waiting for the SEC’s final regulations on crowdfunding more than a year after they were scheduled to be in place. For the less technically literate, online crowdfunding is a money-raising technique where a businessperson can pitch their idea for a movie, video game, or clothing line they’d like to create to online investors. With online crowdfunding platforms like KickStarter, Indiegogo and Crowdfunder, bringing creative and inventive ideas to life has never been easi

Interest: No question about it; you would have to have been asleep over the last year or so to have missed out on what some are referring to as the greatest boon in the investment world, perhaps ever. Some pundits are even arguing that this will turn out to be a game-changer much like the way in which Apple redefined handheld devices with the iPad. The gamechanger is crowdfunding.

Interest: The New York Venture Summit I attended earlier this week, now in its 14th year, was packed with over 500 attendees from life sciences/healthcare, tech and education. Of the nearly 90 companies presenting, about 5% of the presenters were women. Only half of the 5% women were actually CEOs. Many of the women who pitched were in bus dev type roles. There is more Venture and Angel money being invested than ever – in 2013 alone $29B in Venture and $25B in Angel.

Interest: Investing in smaller companies carries a certain amount of risk that more conservative investors are unwilling to bear, yet these types of companies are the ones that tend to offer higher returns if successful. So how about adding a middle man to mitigate the risk? That’s where these two companies come in. Think of them as a mutual-fund-style packaging of smaller up-and-coming companies all bundled together.

Interest: Investors in March fired G. Steven Burrill as the head of a $283 million venture-capital fund he ran, amid alleged fraud and misuse of capital, according to a lawsuit. The lawsuit, filed last week in state court in San Francisco, comes at a time when the Securities and Exchange Commission is taking a hard look at hidden fees at private equity funds, although the investigation has not yet touched venture-capital funds.

They were hungry to hear what three premier venture capital experts had to say about the current landscape for securing investment and how companies can access it.

Interest: Top pharmaceuticals face a dilemma in that many blockbuster drugs are losing patent protection and existing pipelines may not compensate for lost revenues. The choice for many is layoffs, office closings, downsizing or to innovate with new products. Most companies will do the former if they must but prefer the latter. Rather than the megamergers that achieve big cost savings through layoffs and factory closings, most drug companies are aiming for transactions that grow their bottom line.
