What We Do
Mana Tech is our initiative to cultivate a thriving and innovative tech community.
Miami is uniquely positioned to become the next great Tech Hub, with a culture of innovation and a fertile environment for growth. Already, many companies have left historic cities like San Francisco and New York and relocated to the Miami area.
Previously seen solely as a tourist attraction due to its beautiful year round weather, Miami has evolved far beyond the vacation spot it once was.
With advantages such as quality, low-cost housing, easy access to mass transit and below average wage costs, Miami has emerged as a fast growing technology hub.
Miami is experiencing the birth of a new creative class. The Downtown Miami population is rising, with a majority of these people being of working age and affluent compared to surrounding areas.
Soon enough, Downtown Miami will be the region's economic engine, and this new creative class will fuel this change.
