Camila Souza is the writer and community manager in Miami for Tech Cocktail, a national media and events organization that covers entrepreneurs. Knight Foundation invested $150,000 to bring Tech Cocktail to South Florida.
Tech Cocktail will launch its popular speaker series in Miami with a local businessman who heads a growing online English school that serves U.S. and Latin American markets.
Andrés Moreno, co-founder and CEO of Open English, kicks off Tech Cocktail sessions May 1 at Venture Hive in downtown Miami. Frank Gruber, CEO and co-founder of Tech Cocktail, will lead the conversation, which will tap into Moreno’s experience as an entrepreneur. Moreno raised more than $120 million in venture capital to drive the expansion of Open English.
“Our goal with these types of events is to help nurture this growing tech community,” Gruber said, “by creating opportunities for experienced entrepreneurs to share lessons learned while unlocking stories we can share online with both our local and national audience.”
