International Soft Landing

CIC Miami is committed to supporting organizations in pursuit of expanding their business to the United States through Miami. With that in mind we have structured an International Soft Landing Program offering an immersive experience to the organizations coming to explore and establish a presence in the United States, or explore other engagement opportunities in this market. Amongst the organizations we have supported are startups, investors, government departments, and Corporate Ventures.

If you are interested in becoming a Soft Landing partner, we would love to discuss the parameters of the program one-on-one. Contact us today at space@miami.cic.us. Learn more about doing business in the city of Miami at www.why.miami.
