No longer just known for its sun and sand, Miami is slowly but surely becoming a city that’s synonymous with entrepreneurship and innovation.
Historically known for its sun, sand and parties, Miami is gradually transforming itself to become a place synonymous with startups and innovation. In the Kauffman Foundation’s 2017 ‘Index of Startup Activity’ – which examines new business, creative activity and people engaging in startups across America – the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area topped the list at number one among 40 metropolitan areas.
Our Startup Guide Miami book is filled with startups, coworking spaces, programs, schools and investors in the local ecosystem. It also features insightful interviews with founders and experts and gives you all the information you need to get started as an entrepreneur in Miami.
