Step aside Silicon Valley! Tropical Miami is quickly becoming the new tech hot spot.
As Mayor, Francis Suarez says “the economy of today and tomorrow is a tech-based economy.” Entrepreneurs and crypto investors are making their way south to the newest tech scene. This has impacted the growth of the real estate market as demand for commercial properties has increased since the start of the growing tech scene in South Florida. Mayor Suarez welcomes tech developers, venture capitalists, and innovative companies to migrate to a city rich with culture and opportunity.
Tropical, Sunny, and Robust Tech Landscape
South Florida’s growing tech landscape has also been a result of the pandemic and the high taxes and restrictions other cities such as New York experienced. With the beautiful subtropical climate, stable politics, and absence of state income tax, developers and Florida realtors predicted this would happen. The quality of life in South Florida is one of tropical luxury and a diverse ecosystem. What was once a retirement move, has now become a business move for many.
“To really be an innovative city, we have to be on the cutting edge of new technologies,” Mayor Suarez said in an interview with SALT Talks. One of the cutting-edge technologies Suarez is referring to is cryptocurrency and having Miami the city with “the most progressive crypto laws in America.”
Bitcoin, Investment opportunities, and Startup’s Fueled with Potential by the Beach
“Miami provides the opportunity to be part of a growing startup ecosystem,” David Goldberg, general partner of Alpaca told Tech Crunch. With remote business operations continuing to grow as part of the new norm, founders of tech companies will continue to see opportunities in building out remote/hybrid teams from a local South Florida office. Mayor Suarez is partnering with the University of Miami and Florida International University to prepare them for the surge of opportunities and demand for qualified talent.
To welcome all the new locals and investors, a network of people have connected to serve as a concierge-type of service. From WhatsApp groups to encrypted messaging apps dedicated to fintech, healthtech, and activities like kitesurfing and “Miami Tech Welcome” happy hours, newcomers are coming together for opportunity and lifestyle.
