Woodside Fund Managing Director Contributes to Success of 4th Annual Private Equity Roundup 2002 - as Co-Chair and Panelist

Redwood Shores, CA -- January 24, 2002 -- Woodside Fund Managing Director Vincent M. Occhipinti will join with other industry leaders to contribute his views at the 4th Annual Private Equity Roundup 2002, to be held January 27 – 30, 2002 in Scottsdale, AZ. The focus of the conference is to collectively develop strategies to see the private equity industry through today’s uncertain times.

After chairing the Roundup last year, Vincent Occhipinti returns to the podium as Co-Chair. He will also participate on the general session panel, "B-To-B = Back to Basics: The Effect of 2001 on This Coming Year: Lessons Learned, Lessons Applied - There is Opportunity in Chaos." These roles are befitting Vince’s long, fruitful career in venture investing. Vince co-founded Woodside Fund in 1983, and has been intimately involved in the management and success of the Fund and its portfolio companies.

Vince is also well known in the industry for his ongoing role as chairman of the conferences of the Early Stage Venture Capital Alliance (ESVCA), a federation of 150 seed and early-stage funds. Since 1990, the conference has brought together general partners in seed and early stage funds to discuss issues of mutual interest. Prior to founding Woodside Fund, Vince gained a wealth of operating experience in both small and large companies in the technology industry.

"The Roundup provides a valuable opportunity to share thinking and look ahead. Having been through multiple economic cycles over the past 19 years, we feel now is one of the best times to invest in venture capital," remarked Vincent Occhipinti.
