As a start-up cheerleader, Dr. Susan Amats career is rooted in gift giving, in the form of resources and mentorship passed on to the next generation of entrepreneurs. The self-described serial entrepreneur co-developed the University of Miamis Launch Pad, which has become an international model for entrepreneurship education at schools across the U.S., only to turn around and perform another slam dunk with Venture Hive in downtown Miami. The tech accelerator doles out grants and then some to international start-ups within the citys strongest fields, like healthcare and hospitality. As a working mother of two young children, Amat certainly knows the pressures of buying holiday gifts. Here, she shares those that will light up a techies eyes.
