Miami venture capitalists: Inclusion must be defining characteristic of local tech ecosystem
The past few months have been unlike any in the history of Miami’s business and tech ecosystem. But while the city may be the sweetheart of the moment, Miami-Dade must keep up the momentum and take nothing for granted.
That caution came Thursday in a virtual round-table hosted Thursday by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce and moderated by newly appointed Miami-Dade Beacon Council One Community, One Goal Vice President Matt Haggman. During the session, leaders in Miami’s tech and venture ecosystem spoke of the need to seize the moment and take nothing for granted — not even the very factors that led the city to this very moment.
“We have to be holding ourselves accountable and not getting comfortable with the narrative that Miami is a diverse place and that that’s good enough,” said Raul Moas, Knight Foundation program director for Miami.
