“On the heels of the 2017 Florida Early Stage Capital Conference, at which we had more than 130 applicants submitting business plans, and over 20 qualified management teams presenting, comes the news that the South Florida region is now No. 1 in the United States for startup companies.
Startup activity in South Florida now outranks Austin, Texas, and Space Florida congratulates the region on such tremendous growth. With our partnership with Florida Venture Forum, Space Florida is pleased to play a role in Florida’s venture capital arena and promotion of Florida-grown companies. Capital Formation is a vital part of the innovation culture and entrepreneurial climate that is rapidly expanding in Florida to support the explosive growth of new technology ventures in the state.”
