Nutrition Capital Network Spring 2009 in NYC

Nutrition Capital Network’s Fourth Investor Meeting will be held in New York City on Tuesday, April 21, 2009. NCN IV will present professionally screened companies to motivated financial and strategic investors in the nutrition, health, wellness, natural & organic and green products arena.

Companies interested in raising growth capital are invited to apply through March 20, 2009

“Despite current economic pressures, there are positive signs that the consumer trend towards healthier lifestyles is being sustained, and investors remain very attuned to products and services in this space,” said Grant Ferrier, an NCN principal and co-chairman of the meeting. “Several companies that participated in the first three NCN meetings have raised capital, and many more have forged valuable contacts with strategic and equity investors.”

Two NCN Investors Meetings are held each year, one on the East Coast and one on the West Coast. Each Investor Meeting presents at least 20 companies screened by NCN principals.

NCN IV will feature a special track devoted to ingredient & technology companies. The first 12-15 presenters will be consumer-facing, finished product companies and the second 6-8 will be in ingredient development, supply and technology.

NCN Investor Meetings are primarily for companies at two stages:

First Round: Typically companies beyond proof of concept with revenues less than $5 million and raising outside or professional capital for the first time.

Second Round or Later Stage: Typically companies that have already raised structured capital, have revenues of $5 million or higher and are looking for growth capital.

However, Start-up companies or those working on proof of concept may also submit applications.

Companies raising capital and interested in the opportunity to present their business plan to investors are invited to visit to fill in a FREE application form on line. Only companies professionally screened and selected by Nutrition Capital Network principals will be eligible to present at the meeting. Investors interested in registering should visit

Where and When: The Nutrition Capital Network day-long Investor Meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 21, 2009, at the Grand Hyatt New York in New York City.
