Technology and Innovation Take Center Stage at Invest: Miami 2016 Kick-Off
When: April 14, 2016
Where: InterContinental Hotel Miami
Our VIP luncheon officially launches this year’s edition of Invest: Miami’s annual publication. While Miami’s real estate, tourism and financial industries have propelled the market to international prominence, some of the newest and largest investments underway can be found in the city’s emerging technology sector. This emphasis on innovation was the focal point of Invest: Miami 2016, a publication exploring the most salient issues facing Miami-Dade County. The second-annual publication by Capital Analytics Associates is a 200-page economic analysis that highlights business opportunities for investors, entrepreneurs and innovators alike looking to South Florida.
The region’s top business and civic leaders had first access to the Invest: Miami 2016 publication during a sold-out VIP luncheon on Thursday, April 14, 2016 at the InterContinental Miami. Miami-Dade County Public Schools’ superintendent Alberto Carvalho, a proponent of technology in the classroom as a means to boost student achievement, served as the event’s keynote speaker.

This year’s four-member panel of leading business experts included Steven Altschuler, CEO of UHealth; Eugene W. Anderson, Dean of the University of Miami School of Business Administration; Brian Bracken, CEO of Kairos; and Jaret Davis, Miami Co-Managing Shareholder of Greenberg Traurig. The panel explored the ways in which technology is driving investment in the South Florida market and evolving tech trends across sectors.
“Our first publication served as an introduction to Miami, both in terms of growth and economic diversification,” said Abby Melone, executive director of Invest: Miami. “Its overwhelmingly positive reception ensured we would follow up the inaugural launch with an even deeper look at how market newcomers and veterans can take advantage of the region’s investment opportunities.”
Over the course of a six-month research period, the Invest: Miami team met with over 200 top senior-level executives in Miami-Dade County in intimate, one-on-one discussions. These executives came from a broad spectrum and the perspectives collected from these exclusive discussions became the basis of the contents of the 2016 issue.
