With the rise of Art Basel-Miami, Miami Design District, Wynwood, Miami Fashion Week and Apparel Textile Sourcing trade shows and with the choice of many leading brands such as #Dior#LouisVuitton#Gucci to showcase their new collections at #Miami instead of Paris, Miami has been the hot spot for the fashion industry.

Throughout Miami Fashion Week, Miami attracts more than 202M people all around the world and gaining $6M total media value. Generating $1.43 Billion each year in economic impact, Miami is the

12th most important city in the world for the ultra-wealthy. From Art Basel to Fashion Weeks, the Florida city is drawing the attention of mega-brands.

And now Miami Mayor Francis Suarez is calling tech players from Silicon Valley and New York. Some companies and Suarez have already partnered to offer a 20% discount to tech founders, investors and employees who moved to Miami in early 2021.

According to Crunchbase data,Venture-backed companies based in the city of Miami raised $972 million across 57 deals in 2020. The greater Miami area saw nearly $2 billion in funding for companies based  in the area in 2020.







Suarez is also considering the investment of some of the government funds in the world’s largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. The mayor of Miami said that employees in this city will soon be able to choose to receive their salaries in #Bitcoin instead of dollars.

Imagine you build up your fashion brand in Miami with the collaboration of tech companies and earn bitcoins!
