Why Miami

It’s where innovation blooms

Innovative companies from all over the world have established headquarters in Miami to run their Latin American operations. Florida is a very attractive state for entrepreneurs due to its tax benefits at federal and local levels. Cities like Miami now offer a very vibrant startup ecosystem, from commercial real estate options (including co-working and incubator facilities) to the presence of many venture capital firms, investors and ecosystem enhancing non-profits, as well as a rich and thriving multicultural population.

This vibrant environment coupled with logistical ease is the perfect match and has made Miami a hub for Latin America's connection to the world, a true showcase of LATAM's most compelling innovations.

Amplified experience

Every leading player in the tech innovation ecosystem will be at eMerge Americas seeking or offering solutions and fresh approaches to main trends such as digitalization, robotization, AI, big data, IoT, drones, biotech, cleantech, fintech, infrastructure, and others. Those innovations have a broad application spectrum in industries as diverse as Professional Services, Finance, Education, Marketing & Advertising, Government & Non-profit, Transportation, Media & Entertainment, Consumer & Retail, Healthcare, Energy & Industrial..

And with the 100 Open Startups technology working for you, all the interactions within the ecosystem become effective connections that generate real business. It is the right opportunity for those who think of internationalization - both in terms of growth and diversification.

Now is the time for Latin America

A massive validation of this trend is the recently launched Soft Bank’s $5 billion innovation tech fund for Latin America’s startups, including the creation of a Local Hub. Masayoshi Son, chairman and CEO of SoftBank declared that "Latin America is on the cusp of becoming one of the most important economic regions in the world, and we anticipate significant growth in the decades ahead".
