In recent times, more focus has been placed on MiamiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s growing startup ecosystem. Miami has even been given nicknames like Ã¢â‚¬Å“Silicon BeachÃ¢â‚¬Â and Ã¢â‚¬Å“the Internet CoastÃ¢â‚¬Â- but where do these nicknames come from? Investors are sending scouts to South Florida, working spaces and business incubators are becoming more and more common, and entrepreneurial projects like The Knight Project, Endeavor Miami, and YPO Florida, are serving as catalysts for this startup culture to thrive.
Despite all this success, there is still a lot that needs to be done. One of these challenges is how to bring early-stage companies in south Florida who show great potential together with quality capital and dedicated investors. This challenge is why events like the Emerging Technology Business Showcase are so important.
The 17th annual Emerging Technology Business Showcase, held by the Enterprise Development Corp of South Florida and the Florida Venture Forum is a showcase for local emerging companies to bring their innovation to the stage. Over 250 attendees will gather to meet and network with potential investors, clients, partners, and mentors, and hear from industry experts. The goal is to provide investors and companies the opportunity to connect with one another.
Interested in attending? The showcase is being held on Oct. 23 from 9AM to 6:30PM at Miami Dade CollegeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Wolfson Campus.
