Find Your Next Opportunity with the FIU-Venture Miami Opportunity Program
The City of Miami is having a moment that can turn into sustained and inclusive economic development via the strategic and effective stewardship of new companies and investors. Funded by JPMorgan Chase, FIU is leveraging the existing novel partnership between the City of Miami and FIU Engagement via Venture Miami to create a new program that provides targeted access and support to female founders of color in South Florida, a significantly underrepresented group in the innovation economy.
The FIU-Venture Miami Opportunity Program will develop and curate programming that closes the inclusion gap by serving South Florida female founders from underrepresented backgrounds and engaging community-based organizations and potential investors.
Structured as a cohort model, the new program will provide intensive management and leadership training to participants and will focus on four key areas: talent, technology, social network, and access to capital.
