UConn: Hot funding market for startups forecast

Startups seeking funding can cash in right now from a market flush with capital and seeking promising ventures, a panel of UConn experts said recently.

“If you hit it right, it’s a great time to raise money because there’s quite a bit out there,” said Konstantine Drakanokis, a venture capital investor and member of UConn’s  Entrepreneur-in-Residence program.

“This is going to be a very strong year from every indication that I see,” agreed Eric Knight, a serial entrepreneur and angel investor.
