Tomorrow night at the Lightbox in Wynwood, 60+ Miami entrepreneurs will be pitching their startups to a panel of Silicon Valley investors capable of helping kickstart their ideas.
These companies have been part of the NewMe Pop-Up accelerator, which has provided local Miami startups with advice and coaching over the past two days from experienced investors like Scott Kupor of Andreesen Horowitz and Erik Moore of BaseVC.
NewMe, a California accelerator dedicated to promoting a diverse base of tech entrepreneurs, partnered with Lab Miami, a Wynwood based co-working space and startup network, to help identify Miamians who could benefit from the workshop.
Knight has sponsored NewMe’s presence here as part of our effort to connect, educate and inspire Miami innovators and help ignite our local start-up culture.
