( — February 26, 2014) Boca Raton, FL — Boca Raton based Cydec Software will be exhibiting and presenting today at the Gold Coast Venture Capital Association (GCVCA) inaugural Expo at the Embassy Suites in Boca Raton on Wednesday, February 26th from 5-8 pm.  The Expo features twenty-two innovative start-up firms from across the state of Florida, including the ecommerce and email marketing company Cydec Software.  Eighteen corporate sponsors will also exhibit.


“The concept here is to give a large group of entrepreneurs the opportunity to showcase their ideas to a large group of investors, service providers and professionals in an open exposition type format.  We want to bring together a couple hundred bright people with resources and experience to visit the entrepreneurs’ booths and mix and mingle as they see fit.” stated Bob Fitts, President of the GCVCA. He continues, “It’s organized in that we’re bringing them all together, but we want to let people go from booth to booth meeting these sharp entrepreneurs.  


“This is great for the entrepreneurs as they get the opportunity to meet potential investors, they get to make connections with area professionals who may offer services or have connections that would benefit these young firms who also get to practice articulating their business plan.  It’s also a great opportunity for area investors to see some of the better start-ups that the organization has met in the past year.  And given that we expect several hundred professionals and investors to attend, the Expo is also a great venue for area businesses to exhibit and make business connections.”


Corporate sponsors thus far include Miami based EarlyShares, a crowdfunding platform that has been receiving significant local and national attention as of late. Entrepreneurs slated to exhibit include Boca Raton based Cydec Software, which is an online email marketing and ecommerce automation software, that enables website owners, self-published mediapreneurs, and information marketers to power and run their businesses.


According to Cydec President Brett Fogle “We’re really looking forward to the Expo, and meeting potential investors who may be looking to invest in an internet company that is poised for fast growth, with a clear and rapid exit strategy and proven revenue model.


David Bates, Chairman of the GCVCA states, “We’re very excited about the Expo.  Our mission is to provide support and education and opportunities for Florida’s growing companies to meet investors and the Expo is a fun and dynamic way to do that.  I believe this will be an important event for the South Florida entrepreneurial community for years to come.”
