Knight Foundation supports Startup Grind Miami, part of a global community, to expand South Florida’s network for entrepreneurs.
Mario Cruz, co-founder and CTO of Choose Digital, grew up wanting to be a lawyer—until he discovered he hated writing. Now an entrepreneur and technologist, he shared his startup story Tuesday night at Venture Hive thanks to host Startup Grind Miami.
Choose Digital, which Cruz founded with CEO Stephen Humphreys in 2011, is a digital marketplace that allows members to redeem points or miles for the latest music, movies, TV shows, audiobooks and eBooks.
The Miami-based company has allowed companies such as SkyMall, Marriott and United Airlines to include digital content as part of their sales and marketing strategies.
Cruz said that his startup success could be attributed in part to a rule he coined when considering who to have on his team: “No heroes; no zeros.”
