Daniel Davis selected as the Keynote Speaker for Day 1 of Jacksonville Venture Competition 2024

Jacksonville, Florida – Daniel Davis, President and CEO of JAX Chamber, will be the keynote speaker for day 1 of Jacksonville Venture Competition (JVC) 2024. JVC is happening on March 12-13th at Club West in EverBank Stadium. The sole purpose of the March event is to enrich the local economy and community by bridging the gap that exists between investors and entrepreneurs. Daniel Davis has spent the last decade fostering the economic and business ecosystem in Jacksonville making him an invaluable resource to our city and JVC.

This event drives important innovation and collaboration in Northeast Florida by bringing together thought leaders, investors, and start-up companies. Start-ups looking for a place to thrive will soon view Jacksonville as one of the best cities in the Southeast to base their business. Access to early-stage capital is vital for any growing startup ecosystem and crucial for a thriving community of founders and investors.

Daniel was named President and CEO in 2013 and his focus on promoting business-friendly policy, growing an entrepreneurial culture, and reaching out to our entire community has led to significant membership increases during his tenure.

Daniel has been planting seeds in Jacksonville’s economy that have now grown and are thriving. The next evolution of a city of Jacksonville’s size is developing a hub for venture capital and angel investing. Daniel is an advocate and leader in pursuing these efforts in Jacksonville and JVC is honored to have him kick-off our 2-day event in March.
