EagleEye Intelligence, a Boca Raton, Fla.-based public safety and security company increasingly using unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), has been named runner-up in the 2016 VentureTech Showcase in Florida.
The Florida Venture Forum and Space Florida announced the two top winners on Nov. 1 at the Center for Advanced Medical Learning & Simulation. A total of 14 presenting companies – from across Florida in a variety of industry sectors – presented before an audience of approximately 130 investors, deal professionals and entrepreneurs.
EagleEye says it provides end-to-end, unified intelligence for public safety and security. The company unifies and manages real-time intelligence by using an ecosystem of applications, data, UAS and other equipment.
The Florida Venture Forum is a statewide organization supporting investors and entrepreneurs by helping emerging Florida companies connect with sources of capital from across the country. Space Florida was created to strengthen Florida’s position in aerospace research, investment, exploration and commerce.
“We are very pleased to have partnered with Space Florida and Hillsborough County for this event highlighting growth-stage companies in Florida,” says Kevin Burgoyne, president and CEO of the Florida Venture Forum. “All of the high-quality companies who presented are to be commended. Each of them earned the right to participate, giving them the exposure and recognition they need to attract investors.”
