National Eagles and Angels Association to Host Inaugural Meeting of New Miami Chapter on Wednesday, April 6, 2011

Marcelo Llorente, Former Florida State Representative and Candidate for Mayor of Miami-Dade County, to Deliver Keynote Address

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - March 23, 2011) - The National Eagles and Angels Association (NEAA), a nationwide alliance of individual investors and business angels, today announced that the inaugural meeting of its new Miami Chapter will be held on Wednesday, April 6, 2011 at The Bankers Club of Miami. 

Collectively, the NEAA membership is self-defined as "pro-American business-oriented investors" whose mission is to support U.S. entrepreneurial growth companies, and, in turn, promote strong job growth, technological superiority, wealth creation and national economic prosperity. By leveraging angel capital and the collective business and financial expertise of its national membership, NEAA is intent on taking an active role in supporting the emergence and enduring success of promising, innovative American companies.

Marcelo Llorente, former Florida State Representative and candidate for Mayor of Miami-Dade County, will serve as the keynote speaker for the luncheon event. In addition, the meeting will serve as a platform to showcase three undiscovered and/or undervalued entrepreneurial growth companies that NEAA's leadership has determined:

  • offer strong upside potential through rapid organic growth or defined acquisition strategies;
  • have proven management teams in place;
  • have disruptive products and/or services capable of addressing high growth market opportunities;
  • if public, have a stock deemed to be trading significantly below its fair market value price; and
  • if public, lack general market or investment community awareness and support, thus presenting an undervalued or undiscovered investment opportunity for NEAA's members. 

Attendance is restricted to NEAA members and confirmed guests only. To secure membership, please go to http://eagleandangel.com/page/membership/membership-tiers-benefits-dues/. There is no cost for members; however non-members will be charged $50 at the door. Pre-registration is required; to RSVP for the event, please call 888-465-6322.

About Marcelo Llorente
After graduating from Belen Jesuit Preparatory, Llorente attended Tulane University in New Orleans, where he was a member of the university baseball team. In Tulane, his public service extended overseas with his volunteer work in the Catholic Church, traveling on four occasions to the Dominican Republic. Graduating Cum Laude with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration, Llorente chose to pursue a career in law and attended the Florida State University Law School. During his last semester at FSU's Law School, he interned with the prestigious Bryant, Miller and Olive law firm in Tallahassee, and joined the firm upon graduation.

Inspired by his family's commitment to public service, Llorente followed in the footsteps of his great-grandfather, Simeon "Macho" Ferro, who served as a Senator in Cuba; and uncle, Simon Ferro, who served as the United States Ambassador to Panama, and successfully ran in 2002 for the Florida House of Representatives. During his near decade of service in the Florida Legislature, Llorente advanced many priorities to better the lives of Floridians. One of his proudest accomplishments was an effort he spearheaded in 2009 to battle the growing "pill mills" plaguing the state, especially South Florida. The landmark legislation mandated the creation of a statewide prescription drug-monitoring database aimed at curbing the state's flourishing prescription drug black market. In 2005, he advanced legislation, in partnership with the Beacon Council that was unanimously passed by both chambers and signed by then Governor Jeb Bush that promoted job opportunities and economic growth for Miami-Dade County. The legislation paved the way for American-based insurance companies to sell life insurance and annuities to non-U.S. residents. This forward-thinking legislation brought the creation of new, high-paying jobs in Miami-Dade County and across the state of Florida because it attracted new capital and business ventures to Florida and allowed existing businesses to expand their business model.

Llorente has been an active member of the Cuban American Bar Association (CABA) and the Florida Bar. He also continues to volunteer with Amor en Accion, a not-for-profit affiliated with the Catholic Archdiocese of Miami that helps children in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
