CIC Miami Launches Corporate Innovation Program

CIC SEEKS TO CONNECT THE REGION’S CAPITAL, IDEAS, AND TALENT BY INTRODUCING MIAMI’S ENTREPRENEURSHIP COMMUNITY TO THE CITY’S ESTABLISHED CORPORATIONS

Boeing chose to locate its Ventures team near CIC to get the best of both worlds: access the culture, energy and density of CIC while maintaining our identity as the leading aerospace company. It wasn’t enough to simply move out of Boeing’s campus, we needed to move into a new eco-system in order to create a new culture.
— Timothy Noonan, Vice President at The Boeing Company

We invite you to join a community that will encourage your organization to foster innovation and connect with external opportunities. Participation in our Corporate Innovation Program will place your enterprise within CIC & the nation’s number-one-ranked aggregate community of startup activity according to The Brookings Institution.

There are boundless resources to share between startups and corporates, but there are several barriers preventing successful communication and collaboration between them.   

In order to strengthen the Converge Miami innovation district, it is imperative that we create a plurality of stakeholders by partnering with entrepreneurs, investors, universities, and corporations across all industry verticals.

Corporate Support

CIC Miami invites corporations to plug into a quality talent pool, engage with growing entrepreneurs, gain perspective on research and technologies that can be scaled for their company, and connect with the local community.
