Valencia Summit, Ocho Blanco Loft

Startup Valencia is a non-profit organization on a mission to position the Valencian community among the most important tech hubs in the world. That being said, the global association set its eyes on Miami and organized a week-long immersion program, in partnership with Hospitality Ventures, at Mana Common’s Ocho Blanco Loft in Downtown Miami.

Last week, 18 startups traveled to the Magic City to better understand Florida’s innovative and technological ecosystem first-hand. Their agenda included visits to investment funds, banks, accelerators, etc., as well as networking opportunities designed to connect the Valencian entrepreneurial ecosystem with the Miami market.

The purpose was to create a space where entrepreneurs and industry experts could exchange knowledge on Valencian technology and tech companies in Miami, as well as promote their internalization by generating new business.

Valencia and Miami have a lot in common in terms of the configuration of their ecosystems. From Startup Valencia, we have opted to strengthen the connection between the two ecosystems, and this trip to Miami is a great opportunity for our entrepreneurs to explore the possibilities the U.S. can offer.

Mana Tech‘s Managing Director, Charly Esnal, welcomed the Spanish delegation to spend the day learning from tech leaders including Matt Haggman, Executive Vice President of One Community One Goal at the Miami-Dade Beacon Council; Mariano Amartino, Microsoft Startups Director for Americas; and Jeff Snider, Co-Founder of Base Miami.

It’s great to see how the Miami tech brand is growing and attracting ecosystem players from different international locations. We at Mana Tech are building a hub to support international founders in their journey, so we are very excited to not only see this trend of international delegates visiting Miami, but also supporting it.
