CORAL GABLES, FL-Just within a six-month period, seven of the 26 companies that presented business plans at the annual Florida Venture Capital Conference have raised around $30.8 million in venture capital.

Coral Gables-based Florida Venture Forum Inc., a nonprofit entrepreneurial networking group formed in 1984, reports seven of the presenters at the annual conference last January have received equity or commitments either directly or indirectly from the conference.

Since the first round of presentations in 1992, the networking group has helped conference participants raise around $424 million in venture capital. Successful presenters use the proceeds for a variety of growth needs, including leasing and acquisition of operations space.

Of the following seven companies, six are based in South Florida: BizProLink, a Fort Lauderdale, FL-based aggregator of industry-specific applications service providers, received $3.2 million from Crossbow Ventures; Fourbit Group Inc., a Fort Lauderdale-based Internet infrastructure company, received $1.5 million from private investors; and JesterDigital Corp., a West Palm Beach, FL-based creator of web-based, multi-user accessible virtual reality products, received $6.8 million from Crossbow Ventures and Wyncrest Capital.

Kview, Inc., a Tampa, FL-based high-volume multimedia production company, received $5 million from Stonehenge Capital, Advantage Capital, Thompson Murff and others; and LatPro, Inc., a Plantation, FL-based online employment center for Spanish and Portuguese-speaking job seekers, received $300,000 from Fred Perkins of Perkins & Associates.

Medmundo.com Inc., a Miami-based provider of healthcare administration and procurement services, received $4 million from Crossbow Ventures and Battery Ventures; and OmniCluster Technologies, Inc., a Boca Raton, FL-based developer of network technology that provides full PC function and a gigabit network to simplify cost effective high bandwidth solutions, received $10 million from Crossbow Ventures, HIG Ventures and Mellon Ventures.
