I regret to inform you that Regan Bond, the founder of Seedtronic (where we were planning on having this pitch event) passed away last night.
Their office is closed and out of respect for Regan we are postponing tonight's event.
I am sorry to bring you this sad information. Over the past couple weeks I had spent a considerable amount of time with Regan and his startup project and felt he was building a very unique business model. At a future event, we will cover what he was working on and what happens next for his venture and business partner Bob Friedman.
We will let you know the time and date for our next event (which will be soon).
We will be refunding all attendees who paid in advance of this event.
Sorry for this inconvenience and please have a good day.
Update: Though we are cancelling our pitch event tonight, for those startups interested, PMA Ventures, the Venture Capital Group out of Miami would like to meet tonight at Cendyne Spaces at 6pm in the lobby next to MEAT (the restaurant) in Boca Raton with any interested startups. We are not officially having an event there, but they are meeting up there. You can chat with PMA Ventures about your startup and ask them any questions you want.
Cendyne Spaces is located in the Wells Fargo building about 500 yards north of Mizner Park on the north side of Federal Highway (right near where Glades meets Federal Highway)
