Meet The Investor Series

The Enterprise Development Corporation (EDC) in a partnership with the Miami Downtown Development Authority (Miami DDA) will be holding a "Meet the Investor" event series in Miami. These events will be a combination of limited one-on-one introductions between an active early stage investor group and some of South Florida’s most promising startups. Introductions will be followed by an early evening investor reception where a broader audience of entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to more directly learn from each investor’s specific process for applicants and advice to these startups. 

The first one of these series will take place November 3, 2016 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm at the IDEA Center, 315 NE 2nd Avenue.
