Miami’s biggest startup holiday party returns for a 3rd year, and organizers say the 1,000-plus expected to attend will celebrate in a “Magic Wonderland” with surprise performers and visual spectacles.
It all goes down Dec. 13. This year, Miami made, a grassroots organization uniting top founders in Miami, will take guests to “Magic Wonderland” in the new Magic City Innovation District in Little Haiti. The celebration will bring together the entire Miami startup ecosystem for one night and one huge party, organizers say.
“Many startups here in Miami don’t have the time, money or resources to host a holiday party for their company for all employees, investors and favorite service provides. Now they call all celebrate together as one community,” said Miami made co-founder Barry Stamos.
Last year, the celebration was themed “The Future" (shown above and at top). “The response was amazing with 1,000+ of Miami's startup ecosystem attending, and we have something even bigger planned this year,” said Brandon Evans, co-founder of Miami made.
In creating an ecosystem-wide holiday party, Miami made is partnering with Refresh Miami, The LAB Miami, CIC, Ironside, WeWork, Creative Glue, and other organizations involved in Miami’s startup scene. The event is sponsored by Knight Foundation and Wyncode Academy, and all proceeds will go to support the Miami startup ecosystem, organizers say. Reduced priced tickets are available now.
Date: Thursday, Dec. 13, 8 pm – 1 am
Location: Photopia 363 NE 61st St.
