Florida’s tech and entrepreneurship scene is growing at a fast pace. A large part of this is thanks to our close connection with many companies and tech groups in Latin and South America. I attended the 2011 Americas Venture Capital Conference hosted by Florida International University’s Eugenio Pino and Family Global Entrepreneurship Center. A part of Global Entrepreneurship Week, the event is two days of excellent panel discussions and startup help and recognition. Thanks to an aggressive PR team at CVOX Group, I was included and given a pass to attend.
Likely the best part of the event are the prizes for new ventures, with this year’s winners being among many great others consultadr.com and passthenotes.com. Really classy was the return of the $10,000 prize money by consultadr, asking that it be put towards funding next year’s event.
