Angela Benton is founder and CEO of NewME Accelerator, which jump-starts promising tech businesses through hands-on classes and facilitating connections with venture capitalists and other advisers. Below, she writes about NewME’s return to Miami for its third local PopUp accelerator on Oct. 18-19, an initiative that Knight Foundation supports.
It seems like over the past several years there has been an overwhelming number of discussions on innovation, which is always heralded as the “next big thing.” I’ve seen a ton of startups and worked with a ton of companies who all claim to be innovating within their industries. Let’s be honest: Most of them aren’t innovating. However, of the companies that are innovating there are common themes among them, one of which is the convergence of one or more industries.
Seeing this convergence first hand makes me even more excited to partner with REVOLT TV and Knight Foundation to bring NewME’s annual PopUp in Miami to the Revolt Music Conference as an Idea Lab. It’s a two-day experience that converges music, technology and entrepreneurship. We’ll be at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach on Oct. 18-19 discussing entrepreneurship and tech in a series of fireside chats with innovators.
