"Technology companies want to work with a local government that understands their unique goals," states Valdez. "After talking with the investors, I knew exactly what they needed. I arranged a visit with the owner of the CW studio. We toured the entire building. At the end of the tour, the investors were ready to negotiate."

Film producers were attracted to Dania Beach for the filming of Iron Man 3. Savanna Evans (, a local talent representative who is coordinating the project introduced Mr. Valdez to the team. Richard met with the producers to introduce them to the larger offerings that Hollywood provided.
