By South Florida entrepreneurs, for South Florida entrepreneurs. All things tech in the sunny Silicon Tropic.
There is more to Miami than great weather, beaches, and nightlife. Miami has been going through an incredible transformation; the different neighborhoods are developing unique identities, its allure has drawn young professionals to migrate from all over the world, and we are pouring in the foundation for what will be an incredible tech-hub. Already, there are amazing things happening in this city, and we want to raise awareness and unite the community through one medium: a blog with guides, news, interviews, and events. We want to deliver a one-stop shop for information on the thriving Miami startups, entrepreneurs, investors, and the ecosystem.
Silicon Valley is, well, Silicon Valley. The startup community in Los Angeles is known as “Silicon Beach”, and even the Midwest has a nickname: “Silicon Prairie.” When we started to brainstorm ideas for this blog, we realized that there is no uniform way to refer to Miami’s startup community. In an effort to kick off the blog and let the world know that Miami does have a scene that rivals some of the great tech cities, we wanted to name it. That’s when we thought of “Silicon Tropic,” and it stuck.
