The Palm Beach Post reports that the Florida Venture Forum invited 27 start-up companies to present their business plans at the Florida Venture Capital Conference at the Boca Raton Resort and Club.

Two South Florida companies that were schedule to appear where (1) DayJet Corp. of Delray Beach, a company developing on-demand short-haul jet service and founded by Ed Iacobucci, who also created Fort Lauderdale-based software maker Citrix Systems, and (2) Multiply Inc. of Boca Raton, a social networking website aimed at adults who are looking for ways to share photographs and communicate with family and friends.  This company was founded by former CBS sportsline.com executive Pete Pezaris.

In recent years, the meeting has grown from 800 attendees to 1,200, from 50 registered venture capitalists to 200, and from 19 presenting companies to 27.  The Florida group also has seen an emerging influx of biotech venture capitalists.

With Florida’s emergence in the venture capitalist community, it should provide excellent resources in the field of intellectual property law, fueling the development of new patents, trademarks, and copyrights.
