On the same day Miami Beach was celebrating its 100th birthday with major music concert, the Miami Music Summit 2015, a conference bringing together music, technology and entrepreneurship had an eye, and an ear, on South Florida’s next 100 years.
Held with the support of Knight Foundation at Miami Beach’s Colony Theater, the Summit offered hard numbers and eye-opening rags-to-riches stories; long views and specific, how-to-ideas. And there was, of course, live music.
“This event is so important because it brings together people from different disciplines, “said Miami-based music and media producer José Tillán, a multiple Grammy and Latin Grammy winner. “You could be a tech entrepreneur, or you could be an artist and many times you’d be looking for the same thing but in different languages. And It´s important for Miami because this event is a place that unites the local community but also attracts people from the outside world: entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, people in technology and with them, many good ideas.
