Our Why

This is a pivotal moment for Miami. We have never been positioned so strongly for success as we are today. But we also face daunting and ongoing challenges – from sea-level rise, to income inequality, to a much-needed economic reinvention that’s just getting started.

Opportunity Miami is a platform to help catalyze a long-term vision for Greater Miami’s economic future and rally the community to create it. The approach: elevate the best ideas, practices, research and people addressing questions pivotal to our economic future, engage across Miami-Dade County, and share clear, actionable solutions to help our community make better decisions, faster.

It’s an effort that takes the long view. Moving beyond election and news cycles to imagine the Miami we want in 2040 - when the child today in Miami will be readying to enter the workforce.

Our belief is that our greatest challenges present our biggest opportunities. That a more innovative, inclusive and sustainable future can only be built together - with you. And to stay ahead of new challenges and opportunities, a new model for how we envision and build that future is needed.

Join in. Let’s shape our economic future, together.
