Commanding Chaos for Coworking, Open Source and Creative Communities

Blogbait for Dan Rua

Thu, 08/09/2007 - 20:53 -- rprice

If you don't know Dan Rua, know that he is a Venture Capitalist who invested in PayPerPost, an Orlando-based business. He's a Managing Partner of Inflexion Partners, "Florida's Venture Fund", and a part-time blogger. In addition to geeky stuff, he also posts about biotech and UF/Gainesville (his alma mater) quite often.

In light of John Rife's blog today about Central Florida's Early-stage Venture Needs, I got to thinking about how we can further encourage such an event. I'd like to nominate Dan to be on the planning committee for the first Florida Creatives Summit, which I would love to happen some time in the next 6-9 months, sooner if possible. He should definitely attend a Florida Creatives Happy Hour like the one on August 20th or Sept 17th. I'll accept BarCamp Orlando or BlogOrlando as well. Mostly, I'd like to speak to a real live VC guy from Florida.

Dan, I'd just like to have you as a contact more than over MyBlogLog. How's that sound?

Here are some events we're holding in the near future, but they happen each 3rd week of the month.
