Latin American Entrepreneurs Find A Hub In South Florida

Someone finally decided to do it. After only a year of coming on board to head up FIU’s Entrepreneurship Center, Irma Becerra-Fernandez is pulling together the Latin American start-up scene. On November 17-18th, Florida International University will be hosting the Americas VC Conference, a forum for innovative companies in Latin America and South Florida to network with venture capitalists and strategic partners with an interest in the region.

In my conversation with Irma last week she admitted that the conference had taken over her life.  Not surprising considering that in the last couple of months she signed up a number of  blue chip sponsors to the conference including Citi, Telemundo and Fedex, as well as a roster of top notch speakers and panelists that will kick off with a keynote by Venezuelan media mogul Gustavo Cisneros.
