The GCVCA - The Gold Coast Venture Capital Association

Founded in 1984, the GCVCA’s mission is to provide a forum to share information that is pertinent to and develop relationships among entrepreneurs, investors and service providers in Florida’s Gold Coast, roughly defined as Palm Beach to Miami.  

 
GCVCA programming varies from meeting to meeting and includes speakers of regional or national renown, panels on topics of interest to the regional entrepreneurial community,  and “pitch meetings” where local start-ups and earlystage entrepreneurs present their business plans and potential investment opportunities to GCVCA members and guests.  The GCVCA also hosts an annual Expo, showcasing start-ups from around the State of Florida and beyond, and Meet the Angels, a gathering of investors and investment organizations from throughout the state.  Both the Expo and Meet the Angels attract over 500 people annually.
