Hollywood venture capital conference drawing increased investor interest

The Florida Venture Forum has probably never had a better time to hold its annual venture capital conference, scheduled Jan. 29-30 in Hollywood. Panels feature South Florida’s successful entrepreneurs including Dr. Maurice Ferre, who founded Mako Surgical Corp., which was acquired by Stryker for $1.65 billion in 2013; Alberto Perlman, co-founder of international dance-fitness company Zumba Fitness and a Miami resident; and Dan Cane, founder of Boca Raton-based Modernizing Medicine, which in 2014 secured $15 million in new financing.
