BACCF DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGY SERIES

Technology is moving so quickly, and in so many directions, that it becomes challenging to pay attention – we are constantly on the lookout for the “next big thing.” While not all innovations are disruptive, still driving economic growth, disruptive technologies challenge and transform not only business models and the global economy, but life itself.

Simply think of how smartphones largely replaced cell phones and PDAs and, because of the available apps, also disrupted: pocket cameras, MP3 players, calculators and GPS devices, among many others. For some mobile users, smartphones often replace laptops.

True market disruption happens when there is a confluence of multiple events, including seemingly unrelated technology advancements in adjacent industries, by emerging complementary aspects and market readiness for change. For example, artificial intelligence offers the opportunity to change the health of populations, from how individuals track symptoms and life expectancy, to the very nature of diagnostic, surgical, and hospital care, and the economics of health insurance.

Thus, any player, from any industry, can come in unexpectedly with a new business model, fueled by innovative technologies and ideas, and render everyone else obsolete. Therefore, companies need to operate in a state of hyper revolution with the inherent capacity and competency to evolve quickly. For companies and entrepreneurs, that means institutionalizing innovation. Empowering and appreciating employees for increased effectiveness. Having strategies to satisfy clients’ functional and emotional needs. Looking at all market players, even competitors, as potential partners in various levels of alliance. Looking at technology as an increasing enabler of effective change. Constantly looking at new ways of thinking and acting.

Experts suggest that disruptive technology trends to watch for in 2017 include artificial intelligence, automation of everything (cars, finance, etc.), internet of everything, virtual reality, 3D printing, biometrics and digital ID, big data, healthcare, mobile workforce, and space exploration.

The Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce of Florida (BACCF) will be at the forefront of disruptive technologies, by bringing experts to keep its members and the overall business community abreast of trends and innovative business practices.

About The Leah Arts District
Hialeah’s Southeastern industrial corridor rose to prominence during the 1980s as one of the largest and busiest areas of production and manufacturing in Florida. As a result of modernization combined with the effects of outsourcing, the uses that were once prevalent in the area dissipated and this particular area was all but abandoned.
Since that time, a medley of different uses has been incorporated into the area including a heavy presence of some of Miami-Dade County’s most prolific thrift stores.

These thrift stores have been instrumental in introducing Hialeah to an entire generation of antique lovers and artists. The Hialeah Artist Live/Work Overlay District, also known as The Leah Arts District, enjoys a strategic proximity to the newly proposed Hialeah Market Station development project, Miami’s artistic hubs, and other destination areas within Miami-Dade County. Because of it’s location and highly affordable price per square footage, Hialeah’s new Artist Live / Work District is in a position to play a vital and important role in the artistic and cultural development of not only Hialeah, but the entire South Florida community.

Failure in business is when you realize what you’re doing is not going to work, and the pivot that follows is key to success. In Silicon Valley and New York, failures are famously celebrated and treated as valuable learning experiences. However, in many U.S. and Latin American cities with nascent entrepreneurial ecosystems, the term “failure” remains taboo.

This year’s Global Entrepreneurship Week, YPA Miami and Luminary Central bring you local entrepreneurs from various sectors to share their stories of success—peppered with failures both large and small—for a conversation aimed at breaking the taboo.

Join us on November 18 @ The Lab Miami as we discuss with high-profile entrepreneurs how their failures led to their subsequent success, and their learnings along the way. Luminary Central and YPA Miami have joined forces to present this panel discussion in an effort to lessen the taboo of “failure” and celebrate the value in its learnings.

Confirmed speakers*:
Michael “Mike” B. Fernandez, Chairman, MBF Healthcare Partners

2nd Session of “A Conversation With Innovative Women”

Innovative Women Hacking The Startup Life

This was the second in the series of conversations with innovative women titled “Hacking the Startup Life”, hosted byLuminary Central, Crea7ive Interactive Advertising, and Pipeline Brickell. Its aim was to engage the panelists in a discussion regarding common obstacles women entrepreneurs face, and what methods they developed to overcome them.

The entrepreneurs involved in this session were Birame Sock from FlyScan, Dawn Sole from Pluck N’ File, and Tamar Lucien from CanUStart. The event was masterfully moderated by Luminary Central‘s own Christine Johnson.

The event kicked off with interesting facts from each of the founders that shed some light on how they now face obstacles. Dawn used to play football for an all boys team, Tamar has family gingerbread house building competitions that encourage the demolition of other’s structures, and Birame responds to an irrate note with the gift of a can opener.

The conversation was fluid and directed by Christine with various pointed questions. Some of the responses are highlighted below:

Have you ever experienced an unconcious bias as a woman in the startup world?

Birame responded with an experience she had when sitting in the office of a VC in Boston. “I was sitting in the office waiting for my appointment. The door was open while we were waiting. The guy I was meeting walks by and looks in. Walks by again, and looks in. Walks by a third time and says “You’re my meeting?”. After I said yes he said “Well I have a hard stop in 10 minutes, what’s your business plan?” Two hours later he called his assistant to cancel his lunch meeting to continue our conversation.”

Are there moments when you under estimate yourself?

Dawn replied with “We all experience it, but I’ve realized it’s all in how you talk to yourself. Now I force myself to look in the mirror and say “You’re the champ” repeatedly.”

How do you overcome fear or other inner struggles?

Tamar stated “I’ve learned you just have to call it for what it is. If you’re upset, just say you’re upset. I have to own my feelings and let them out and then move onto the next thing.”

There were many other impactful moments and lessons shared by these three great founders. The insight they shared with the audience was relatable, actionable, and inspiring. Numerous audience members stated how valuable they found the experience and the actionable advice they were going to implement immediately.

We are looking forward to the next session in the series of conversations with innovative women.
