pre·cau·tion

/prəˈkôSH(ə)n/

Merriam-Webster defines precaution “a measure taken in advance to prevent something dangerous, unpleasant, or inconvenient from happening.”

In the world of innovation, the precautionary principle describes a strategic approach to addressing issues of potential harm, particularly when extensive scientific knowledge on the matter is lacking.  The key attributes of this practice call for caution, pause and review before making a leap.

Let’s start with the bad news:  there’s growing concern about the widespread reach of COVID-19  (but you were probably well aware of this fact).  That’s why we are adopting important precautions to limit the potential exposure and spread of the novel COVID-19 virus (“coronavirus”) and other contagious illnesses to our community.

So now, the good news:  The #ThursdayGathering is still happening this week on March 5th – a special #305Day celebration of the our unique connections with the Startup Nation powered by the Florida Israeli Business Accelerator.

We recognize that the #ThursdayGathering is a quintessential space of convergence for our local innovation community. Every week innovators from all over the city, region, and often, the world connect with each other to make things happen.

Therefore, we ask for your help and cooperation to ensure the Venture Café community remains healthy and safe. 

Request No. 1:  Please do NOT attend our events or if you are sick or have been exposed to illness.

Request No. 2: Review our Important Health Alert  for more details on the precautionary health and safety measures to which we ask you to adhere.

We will continue to closely monitor the circumstances relative to COVID-19 and will keep our community updated via social media channels and our *new* Slack channel.

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday.  But, please stay home if you are not well.

Cheers,

Leigh-Ann / Venture Café Miami
