Venture Café Miami’s mission is connecting innovators to make things happen.

Founded in 2016, Venture Café Miami is a nonprofit organization that seeks to grow Miami’s innovation community by working to make it more diverse, inclusive, accessible, and better connected locally, nationally, and globally. Venture Café Miami is a member of a growing global network of organizations – each with a shared mission and local flare.

Venture Café began in 2009 as an experiment by the Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) to test a simple hypothesis: if we bring together innovators and entrepreneurs to engage in spontaneous conversations and semi-curated programming, they’ll come up with never-before-imagined innovations to make the world a better place and generate economic growth. And, it’s working. Read our full global story. Venture Café Miami works closely with its partner, CIC Miami, to build a vibrant innovation community in South Florida.
