The path to success opens to all entrepreneurs

The pandemic seems to have turbo-charged real estate and technology investment trends that were already being experienced in Miami prior to the global outbreak of COVID-19.
A favorable business environment and the explosion of remote work enabled by increasingly robust virtual technologies, has made Miami home to a growing roster of renowned hedge-funds, family-offices, private equity and high-tech firms.
This increasingly diversified economic growth is having a profound impact on Miami’s commercial real estate and hospitality industries.

Join FIU Business as we explore these topics and much more at the annual REact Real Estate Conference on November 4, 2022.
