Miami is one of the top-ranking tech hubs in the US. Forbes’ new ranking of emerging tech hubs in the US rated ‘The Magic City’ 2nd, ahead of New York and Austin.

The Miami Guide sat down with Marie Berry, Chief Marketing Officer at TheVentureCity, to talk about the reason for Miami’s rapid growth and how your startup can follow the trend.

Marie is a 2x founder and angel investor, having built Kara, and enterprise SaaS platform with customers like and Beats by Dre and TikTok, which was acquired by a leading out-of-home adtech company in early 2021. This marks her second martech exit. She is also an active angel investor and startup mentor, founding member of Dreamers & Doers – a community for entrepreneurial women, and a member of several networks.

We talked about startups that they helped succeed and how Web3 and Blockchain technology helps unlock a new type of scaling where talent has no zipcode and companies have no borders.
