What Industry Leaders Are Saying

Providing the people of Miami with a job and skill set in this industry is truly my way of giving back to a community for which I have always cared deeply, the way they did for me when I first came to this country and started out many years ago

Because of its geographical position, the diversity of people who live here and the climate, Miami is the best place for a creative design start up and for a company that is looking to relocate from another city”
