"The Florida Venture Forum events provided an incredible platform to showcase our company to members of a vibrant and diverse entrepreneurial and investment community!"Matthew KimCEO, STAT3 Therapeutics
"We met with BabySparks at the Florida Venture Forum and were incredibly impressed by him and how far he’d gotten without any outside investment. We introduced him to Ocean Azul, who we work closely with, and they led the $2 million seed round."Rebecca DantaManaging Director, Miami Angels
"As the most active venture fund in Florida over the last decade, we have found that the Florida Venture Forum and associated conferences throughout the year are invaluable resources for our firm as we identify the most promising growth companies within the state.”Sean BarkmanPrincipal, Ballast Point Ventures
"Florida Venture Forum was an incredible experience for Fattmerchant. It was after we pitched that we met our primary investors of Fulcrum Equity that ended up investing 15M into our company for two executive rounds. Without being at that forum, speaking to dozens of investors - we wouldn't have found our perfect match."Suneera MadhaniCEO/Founder, Fattmerchant
"Presenting at the Florida Venture Forum to a room full of top investors really kicked off our fund raising efforts and company growth. Today, our product is Apple’s go-to-market solution for mobile point-of-sale with major retail customers around the world."Greg SchmitzerPresident, Mad Mobile
