Global Innovation Xchange (GIX) connects innovation players worldwide to the South Florida innovation ecosystem.  Venture Cafe Miami’s innovation programming has attracted over 33,000 attendees, resulting in content partnerships with 800+ organizations and 1500+ free educational sessions to support local entrepreneurs  and innovation stakeholders.

Through GIX, we help seed soft landing connections by leveraging VCM’s expansive network in South Florida to showcase business opportunities for GIX partner organizations and facilitate in person knowledge sharing exchanges in GIX partner countries designed to advance local innovation economies.

Why Connect Innovators Beyond Borders ?

At VCM, we’re focused on connecting innovators to make things happen.  That includes our regional partners, many of which are in closer in geographic proximity than the rest of the United States.

The primary goal of GIX is to foster sustainable international linkages to the South Florida innovation economy that create collaborative, valuable outcomes for GIX partners.

How Does It Work?

#VCMTakeover  @ Miami

We activate the largest convening of South Florida innovators for a super-sized #VCMTakeover Night. 

At the #VCM Takeover Night, the GIX team will curate  interactive breakout sessions and a multi-dimensional experience to:

  • Enhance relationship building among attendees and GIX partners,
  • Connect GIX partners with local investors and thought leaders through 1:1 Office Hour meetings,
  • Highlight GIX visiting startups and innovation trends/ opportunities.  

Additionally, we include our GIX partners in select Miami-based Captains of Innovation programming — the signature Corporate Innovation program of CIC Venture Cafe Global Institute and Cambridge Innovation Center.

Knowledge Sharing Xchange @ Partner Ecosystem

In addition to exposing GIX partners to the Magic City and our regional culture of collaborative, the GIX team will continue to serve as a  liaison between local innovation stakeholders and the visiting GIX partner groups by traveling to the partner country to host a Knowledge Sharing Xchange.





These GIX Knowledge Sharing convenings feature interactive sessions for local stakeholders and offer insights into:

  • Designing For Inclusive Innovation Ecosystems Beyond The Valley,
  • Is E For Everyone? Strategies for Achieving Equity & Access in Supporting Entrepreneurship Driven Economic Mobility, and
  • Co-designed sessions featuring relevant South Florida based thought leaders, GIX Partners and/or local ecosystem leaders/
