Miami is home to the Cruise Capital of the World and has one of the World’s busiest airports which historically have combined to make the South Florida economy dependent on hospitality and tourism. Miami is also in the middle of an economic transformation. Last year, area tech startups received an estimated $2.0 billion in venture capital funding, placing Miami eighth on the list of U.S. cities in terms of venture capital activity. For Miami to be successful in developing the overall tech ecosystem, it must develop talent, improve physical digital infrastructure, and promote entrepreneur networks. Honorable Mayor Francis X. Suarez will host a Cafecito Talk with industry leaders in his quest of making Miami the “capital of capital” with an innovative technology ecosystem and economy that delivers for everyone. The thoughtful conversation will be live-streamed on Instagram.
