Why Miami, You Ask?
We are bullish on Miami, period. Although South Florida is still a young region with many challenges ahead, it gathers a robust list of resources – entrepreneurs, universities, foundations, corporations, funding sources, its demographic location and transit patterns – that make it a unique, thriving, and exciting place to be. It is for this reason that CIC Miami chose to expand here from Boston, and that I myself moved here from New York some years ago. Out of this same logic, admiration, and optimism, we brought forth the “Why Miami” project. Our goal is to feature the many stakeholders working here and to present a more complex narrative of what our city has to offer in hope that it encourages others to see our city as part of their launch and growth plans. We hope that through this website, you will see that there is a long list of institutions and stakeholders excited about Miami and ready to welcome you!
