About this event

Miami—with its tropical climate, diverse population and lack of state income tax—has suddenly become a tech hot spot.

 In 2020, high-profile investors moved to South Florida. Soon after, Miami Mayor Francis Suarez began promoting the city -- on Twitter -- as an emerging tech hub, and at the start of the new year, there’s increasing desire to move out of traditional tech hubs and join the buzz. 

Miami is also multilingual, multicultural, and a true representation of the future of American cities: a majority-minority demographic, and the leaders of the city write why Miami is a haven for innovators, builders and those who wield technology as a powerful tool of social change. 

Join us as we talk to local leaders to speak about Why Miami is place of power for BIPOC tech talent.
