The Americas Venture Capital Conference (AVCC) will be among the many highlights of Innovate MIA in Miami next week. Set to take place the 13th and 14th of December at that JW Marriot Brickell, the two-day event will be a summit for leaders in innovation, entrepreneurship and technology from the North and South America alike.
Top names in the American innovation community are slated to attend and speak at the event, including Martin Varsavsky of Fon, Dan Maccarone of Charming Root and Gerald Brady of SVB. Beyond the keynote presentations in the agenda, attendees will also be invited to sit in on numerous discussion panels on a wide range of themes, including hiring, publicity, investing and management.
AVCC, as with most tech conferences, will feature competitions for startups and entrepreneurs as well. A select group of startups have been invited to give two- and five-minute pitches at the event. What’s more, the five finalists from the previous weekend’s HackDay will also present and compete at AVCC on the 14th.
