What better way to end the week than a happy hour with awards, an entrepreneurship star and free beer?

Join us May 3 when entrepreneur/investor/soccer maven Marcelo Claure shares his insights as we celebrate the 2019 winners of the Miami Herald Startup Pitch Competition, sponsored by Florida International University’s Pino Global Entrepreneurship Center.

All are welcome at our free community event at the Rubell Family Collection in Wynwood. And yes, there’s beer!

The formal event begins promptly at 5:30, with the presentation of awards and recognition of finalists and judges. Capping the event will be our keynote presentation, when Krillion Ventures managing director Melissa Krinzman interviews Claure, founder of Brightstar, former president of Sprint and now SoftBank executive and investor.
