Companies with innovative ideas and a focus on Latin America will get a chance to meet up to 100 investors at a new FIU enterprise conference.
Fifteen innovative companies from South Florida and Latin America will make a pitch to get funding to fuel further growth during the inaugural Americas Venture Capital Conference next week at Florida International University.
It’s a chance to rally investors interested in the region and match them with promising companies that need additional capital.
In fact, the two-day event running Nov. 17-18, whose theme is “Latin America: The New Mainstream,” is the only venture capital conference focused on new ventures based either in South Florida or Latin America that have a primary focus on that region, said Irma Becerra-Fernandez, director of the Pino Global Entrepreneurship Center, and professor of management information systems at the College of Business Administration at FIU.
