Locke Lord & Florida Venture Forum Announce Healthcare Summit at 2024 Florida Venture Capital Conference

Locke Lord, a premier full-service Am Law 100 law firm, and Florida Venture Forum, the leading statewide support and member organization for venture and private equity professionals and entrepreneurs, today announced the Locke Lord Healthcare Summit, taking place as part of the Forum’s 2024 Florida Venture Capital Conference, January 31, 2024, through February 1, 2024, in Miami. 

The Summit, which will be held on the afternoon of February 1, 2024, will include speakers and panel discussions featuring several major national venture funds and corporate investors specializing in healthcare, as well as presentations from several promising healthcare companies selected by a committee of active investors. Confirmed speakers and presenters include ARCH Venture Partners, NEA, Independence Blue Cross, Care.ai, Mayo Clinic, and many more.

In addition to Locke Lord, Summit co-sponsors include University of Florida and University of Miami

John Igoe, partner at Locke Lord and Florida Venture Forum board member, said, “As a longtime supporter of the Forum and the Florida venture ecosystem Locke Lord is proud to sponsor this innovative summit. Healthcare innovation is one of Florida’s strengths, and we look forward to welcoming founders, investors, and thought leaders at this year’s event.”

Dr. Jackson Streeter, director of UF Innovate Ventures and chair of the Forum’s healthcare selection committee, said, “We expect to feature several of the most promising healthcare companies at this year’s event, including companies from UF and UM, as well as some of the most promising and investment-worthy companies from Florida and beyond.”

A complete roster of Summit speakers and presenting companies will be available soon on the Forum’s website.  

The Florida Venture Capital Conference will feature fast growth participating companies selected from hundreds of applications by committees of active venture investors, as well as an expected crowd of 1000 attendees, including 250+ venture investors from 100+ funds from across the country, and beyond.

The 2024 event follows a record-setting event in 2023, also held in Miami. That event set records for attendance across several metrics, including overall, first-time, out-of-state, and female registrants.
