South Florida is rich in mobile tech history…In fact, 20 years ago the first SmartPhone was developed in Florida. Truth be told Florida has always been on the cutting edge of being mobile and productive at the same time…think Don Johnson driving a Ferrari while on a mobile phone in Miami Vice.

Be in the front row as the South Florida Technology Alliance and Chris Fleck, VP of Mobility Solutions, moderates an all-star panel on industry heavyweights:

  • John Sculley – Former CEO of Apple, now South Florida Tech Investor
  • Jamie Borras – Former SVP of Research at Motorola and developer of PushToTalk
  • Scott Moody – Founder of AuthenTec, recently bought by Apple for $365 Million
  • Jerry Merckel – Led the initial Simon SmartPhone concept and strategy at IBM

The event will be hosted at the recently renovated Citrix Global Headquarters at 851 Cypress Creek in Fort Lauderdale and be attended by veritable list of who’s who in South Florida technology including some very special guests. Don’t ask…I can’t tell you.

3 cool new mobile startups will be featured at this event. If you know a mobile related startup with a great demo have them Contact Jackie Metscher at 954-239-9739 or jackie@southfloridatech.org for a chance to showcase their products in front of a crowd full of industry influencers and veterans.
