The Enterprise Development Corporation of South Florida (EDC), a nonprofit organization specializing in providing strategic business development services to emerging science and technology companies, announced that jobsite123.com is among the fourteen finalists that will have the opportunity to do a 3-minute on-stage presentation at their 13th Annual Emerging Technology Business Showcase (ETBS). ETBS is South Florida’s annual premier event for science and technology startups where the investment community convenes to preview South Florida’s most promising young companies in the region. Participants include first and second stage entrepreneurs, business leaders, educators, investors and service providers. This year’s theme is “Growing Our Entrepreneurial Ecosystem”, and it is EDC’s first time partnering with the Florida Economic Gardening Institute, a nonprofit organization that provides technical assistance for second stage growth companies.
“Each year we look forward to hearing from companies that are representing technologies and solutions with the potential to change the global economy,” said Jane, Teague, EDC Executive Director. “From alternative energy to discovering new forms of transportation and aerospace, ETBS is a great opportunity to learn and network.”
EDC’s 13th Annual Emerging Technology Business Conference will be held at the Deerfield Beach Hilton on November 12, 2010 at 10am.
“jobsite123’s launch could not have come at a better time. While the commercial construction industry continues to suffer from a severe downturn, jobsite123 has introduced a solution that helps firms lower costs and find work more quickly.” --Gonzalo Marquez, Managing Partner at Falcon Opportunity Partners
