SBDC at FIU prepares Miami businesses for hurricane season
The goal: to increase the survival rate of local businesses.
As the 2015 Atlantic Hurricane season got underway June 1, South Floridians kicked off a flurry of shopping activity to prepare their homes and businesses for what may arise. The College of Business’ SBDC at FIU is contributing to those efforts with a series of disaster preparedness workshops for Miami-Dade County businesses.
SBDC at FIU jumps in with Sky Zone
Sky Zone wants to keep its South Florida fans jumping, and the SBDC at FIU is making sure that the indoor trampoline park’s expansion plans continue at a quick pace.
Juan Brandt, who holds the franchise rights to Sky Zone in Miami-Dade County, opened his first Miami location inside a 32,000-square-foot warehouse in Doral in 2012.
