Upcoming MicroCap Event: Jumpstart Innovation & Investment NYC


Upcoming MicroCap Event: Jumpstart Innovation & Investment NYC

We recently caught up with Sam Kotch of Acquis Capital to discuss Jumpstart Innovation & Investment (JumpIN), an event Acquis Capital is co-hosting on February 6th in New York City.
Q&A below:

When and where is the event held? How did you decide on that location?

Sam Kotch: “The next JumpIN event will be held at the Penn Club in NYC on February 6th, 2018. The location provides an exclusive venue in the heart of Manhattan where investors and entrepreneurs can connect on a personal level.”


How would you best describe the event?

Sam Kotch: “This year we will host a series of events across the country. Each event will feature 5-20 presenting companies and 50-250 pre-screened accredited investors and deal-oriented funds. The February 6th Jumpstart Innovation & Investment event will host about 75 investors and 8 companies for a full dinner, cocktails, presentations, and networking.”


Who hosts the event? Any interesting sponsors?

Sam Kotch: “Acquis Capital is co-hosting the event with MJ Segal Associates. Acquis Capital is an active investor focusing on acquisition and project funding. Over the last 15 years, MJ Segal has hosted nearly seventy sold out investor events in NYC.

We don’t have any service provider sponsors. JumpIN focuses on connecting growth companies with investors compared to traditional investor conference that usually end up connecting service provider sponsors with new clients.”


Any panels or keynotes planned?

Sam Kotch: “There are no panels, keynotes or other speakers to distract from deal-making. The only speakers are companies presenting to the entire room of investors.”


How many attendees do you expect?

Sam Kotch: “We expect to have about 75 investors and 8 presenting companies. This will be an intimate event where all participants can connect on a personal level over dinner and cocktails.”


Who should attend JumpIN and why?

Sam Kotch: “Growth companies that are actively seeking funding of $500k to $50 million and accredited investors or fund managers that are looking for exciting investment opportunities.”


What size and type of MicroCap public companies should attend? 

Sam Kotch: “MicroCap companies with experienced management teams , a clear growth strategy and actively raising $500 thousand to $50 million should certainly consider attending.”


How do potential attendees register?

Sam Kotch: “The event is by invitation-only but we are always looking to expand our network of qualified growth companies and investors. To see if you qualify, please email me at samkotch [at] acquiscapital.com


Anything else potential attendees should know?

Sam Kotch: “Space at the Penn Club is limited and we are quickly approaching our attendance limit. We are expecting a great group of mostly individual accredited investors and small family offices in addition to some very exciting growth companies. If you would like to attend as an investor or presenter, please email me as soon as possible (samkotch [at] acquiscapital.com).”
