A Slew Of Prominent Tech Investors Have Announced They Will Relocate From Silicon Valley To Miami, In An Exodus That Is Accelerating

Multiple tech investors have announced in recent days they will move from the Bay Area to Miami.

David Blumberg a venture capitalist who founded and manages Blumberg Capital, has announced his move from the San Francisco area to Miami, according to the San Francisco Business Times.

Blumberg said the move was driven by poor governance in California.

Here is how Blumberg explained the move in a Facebook post:

“Big news, bittersweet news, but for the best. As of last night, we have moved out of California, and are now happier residents of southern Florida. Poor governance at the local level in San Francisco and statewide in California has driven us away.

We recognize the amazing and unique natural gifts that G-d and geology bestowed on California, but enough is enough.

We certainly hope and pray that California will take action to remedy the disastrous self-inflicted political situation and restore its former luster and quality of life, but for now we are voting with our feet.”

Blumberg went on to urge friends and family to make the same move.

According to the paper, there is an ongoing exodus from Silicon Valley, with Miami an increasingly popular destination.

Keith Rabois, an early executive at companies including Square, LinkedIn, Yelp, and PayPal, announced in November he is moving to Miami, according to Fox Business.

Billionaire Jon Oringer, the Founder & Executive Chairman of Shutterstock, recently purchased a $42 million home in Miami Beach and relocated here. He has also announced a new incubator fund to invest in Miami businesses called Pareto Holdings.

Another Bay Area investor told the Times that she expects the exodus to accelerate over the next 24 months.

I grew up in Miami and now live in San Francisco. If you think you have it bad in Miami, things are far worse in San Francisco.

The cost of living and traffic are as bad or worse in San Francisco, even accounting for the higher wages. There is a really serious homeless crisis that you really need to see to believe. Miami and San Francisco are about the same geographical size but Miami has 1000 homeless with 8000 shelter beds while San Francisco has 10,000 homeless and just 2000 beds. There are tent camps on every other block and needles and human shit are a common site.

The homeless population also depends on recycled cans for their income so it is extremely common for trash cans to be upturned and their contents dumped onto the streets. And it is also harder to get rid of junk. San Francisco doesn’t have a dump where you can take junk. Instead you have to pay at least $120 to have a private company come and pick up your junk. As a result, the streets are completely covered in trash, shit and needles.

And the San Francisco police department has stopped enforcing a lot of low-level property crimes like car break-ins, bike thefts and porch piracy. As a result, San Francisco leads the nation in these types of crimes. It’s not a matter of ‘if’ your car will get broken into but ‘when.’ You can’t even leave a charging cable visible or you will get your window smashed. And sometimes you may get your window smashed even when your car is empty.

And despite all of these very real problems, the local government is more interested in woke politics and virtue signaling.

JSYK, Miami-Dade County leads the nation in new HIV infections from needle sharing. I know SF has a much larger homeless problem, but it also has a much larger population, nearly double the size of the city of Miami, so of course there will be more homeless, especially when cost of living is as high as it is there. Miami’s housing costs are on par with Boston, DC, and some parts of NYC, and the wages are far below those other cities. Sure, we don’t have a state income tax, but if the average apartment costs you over $2,200/month, and the average salary is at most $54,000 PLUS you NEED a car (which you don’t in the other cities, which saves you big bucks), then you quickly realize that Miami isn’t as attractive of an option to reside in. I’m’ not saying Miami is worse than SF, but I’m saying Miami is no better than all of the other major cities facing similar issues.

Yes, very well said, these new big city transplants will do great as long as theyre living off NYC and CA salaries. Regarding the homeless population in Miami, it has gotten completely out of control since the pandemic and its about to get worst thanks to the winter.

Yeah, so San Francisco is about twice the population of the City of Miami. But that still means 5X the homeless population per capita. And my point about the shelter beds is really critical. Miami generally shelters its homeless population. Those who live rough on the streets are doing so for personal reasons. But in San Francisco there are 5 homeless people per shelter bed. That means that the number of homeless people on the streets in San Francisco is really like 50X that of Miami.

Also, while the homeless crisis in South Florida is noticeable in parts of downtown Miami, Miami Beach and Ft. Lauderdale, the homeless problem in San Francisco is really a regional problem affecting the entire West Coast from San Diego to Vancouver. There are homeless tent cities in Oakland, San Jose, Sunnyvale, Cupertino, Santa Clara, Berkeley and Fremont. Even a small town like Santa Rosa, 170k population, one hour north of San Francisco, has a homeless population of 3000. The Bay Area has an overall homeless population of 30,000. LA has 55,000 homeless people. Portland, Seattle, San Diego and everywhere in between have massive homeless populations.

It really is an unimaginable level of misery visible on the streets of California that you need to see for yourself.

The average is most certainly not $2,200 throughout the city of Miami. Brickell probably, but certainly not little Havana and Allapattah. The cheaper rents do not include fancy gyms, pools and dog parks but they do offer the basic necessities. If one’s income is in that range, the best choice is to find a decent apartment with no frills. The buildings may not be new, but they are fine enough for many families (mine included). Just looking online there are plenty of options for a modestly sized 2/2 apartments for about $1,800/month. Try finding similar options that are within 3/4 miles of the downtown core in cities like San Francisco, Boston and DC.

1. The weather is too hot all year round. It was in the high 80s to low 90s last week at the end of NOVEMBER!
2. The “nature” here is bogus. Beaches and swamps without any shade…who wants to “hike” in that? Additionally, Biscayne Bay is constantly contaminated with fecal matter, so you have to check if it’s safe before you even go for a paddle.
3. Very little things to do for free or cheap. In other cities you have really nice parks or museums for free or cheap, not here. Most of our parks have palm trees and that’s it. See point 1 to explain why palm trees suck.
4. There’s no robust public transportation. If you are a young professional and want to go out and drink, you have to spend absurd amounts on an Uber because the transit system is a joke.
5. The entertainment market here is awful. Unless you like reggaeton, EDM, or pop music, you’re hard pressed to find emerging or alternative artists doing shows here. The Gleason/Fillmore is the closest venue but still doesn’t book as many emerging artists and alternative artists as venues such as Tabernacle (ATL) , 9:30 Club (DC), and Stubbs (Austin). Revolution in Fort Lauderdale gets SOME of the artists, but not all of them, and see point 4 about transportation.
6. The wages for even high skill jobs are well below the averages for other major cities with comparable housing costs, so the little money you do have left can’t get you far.

Please tell me what reasons make living here worth the expenses.

Prices are high tide to the fact that the major players (Facebook, Google) are still there and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. In my opinion, I think Mother Nature is going to play a big part in recalibrating California.

All it will take is for one 7+ magnitude earthquake for reality to set back in state. With so many buildings in San Francisco deemed historic and therefore not equipped to handle a catastrophic quake and so few with earthquake insurance; it’s a recipe for disaster. Time has made many complacent, but unlike with Hurricanes, there is no telling when it will strike.

1988 was not close to what occurred in 1906. Sure the city rebounded after it was nearly completely destroyed. I am talking about a 7.9 not 6.8 as it was in 1988. Plus, in 1988 the center of the quake was not directly under the San Francisco peninsula. 1906 was.

I am not rooting for a quake, as the destruction to life and property will be immense. All I am saying is that the day the quake comes, San Francisco and LA will have to be prepared. Looking at their budgets, I am not reassured.

And the same thing will happen to Miami. Rent is already way too high and if this is all true it will only get higher. Job pay doesn’t correlate with the cost of living. But they keep putting expensive apts in downtown Miami right next to all the bums on the street in Overtown.

Again, if you don’t have the income to afford the luxury apartments of Brickell or downtown there are plenty of places in Miami to rent a decent apartment or even a house (Allapattah, Little Havana and Flagami). It is not the shiny new apartments in Brickell but they are good options for people that are smart enough to not live beyond their means. If the places mentioned above are beneath you can either work and earn more income or move to another place.

I wish people in Miami good luck as it becomes a prime destination for people moving out from California. Cali has been attractive to people that want to make quick buck, but really no affinities to the place. As economic opportunities grow, so does the population, and the problems that come with it keeping everyone employed, housed and generally happy. I for one, cannot wait California to go back to the sunshine state that it once was, not the overpopulated mess that it’s now….

Trump lost in Miami-Dade by nearly 7 points. Considering Hillary won by 30 points you can hardly bring out the champagne for the Democrats. Also, the Republicans unseated two Democrat held congressional districts and flipped a Florida Senate seat here in Miami. I’ll concede that Cava won the mayorship, but apart from that Democrats are going to have to go back to the drawing board if they want to have a chance of winning Florida.

Innovation Districts in Miami are not real nor serius, but are used to get attention more from investors in Real Estate for speculators for more condo developments. Case in point are Magic City Innovation District and Miami Innovation District. Cities that push for Innovation District designation lead with tax incentive initiatives to which none of that has happened in Miami while cities like Boston, Philadelphia, NYC(Brooklyn), St. Louis, Pittsburgh and others have created such districts that are centered around university research and development partnerships and city governments. Note, Miami Innovation District has not filed for SAP status. That pretty much says that the owners are looking for a development cycle where they can either flip the entire project or attract development partners similar to what MWC has done. Miami’s leadership needs to step it up some if Innovation Districts are of true interest. The rewards could be be vast.

People moving here with families don’t want to live in condos. They want to live in houses with yards. I don’t care if you’re a Boomer or Millennial, but if you have kids, you’re probably not looking at a condo or apartment. That said, SF has been established (settlement wise) quicker and longer than Miami. We have plenty of land left to develop, but any time there’s a mass influx of buyers at the same time, it’s going to push the prices up because of lack of supply. Are these folks going to move here and build their dream home and wait in a condo while they do it? Probably not. They’re going to look for their best options available for an easy transition for their entire families. Now, younger single professionals obviously have more freedom in where and what type of housing they want.

Tesla already moved its gigabit new headquarters to Austin. As well as Apple halfway thru building its second headquarters, Google has a large project here w new tower and Facebook employs as much as any of its locations here other than Cali. Samsung US Headquarters, Dell US Headquarters, Dept of Army Technology new headquarters, and about 100 other tech and new energy headquarters also being here and 300 plus days of sunshine, maybe thats why we are building a new extension of rail w subway and highway tunnels under downtown and lake Austin and now 2.2 million metro population and 10th largest in US. TX has 4 of the top 10 largest cities and all are led by Democratic mayors and city councils. We don’t have state income tax, we are slowly becoming less good old boy dumbass and just recently 51% non native Texas born w many from the Northeast and Midwest moving here as well as great investment from California families moving here buying homes at half what they spent in Cali so some buy 2 homes. Yes parts are expensive (Austin is top 10 in cost but also wins best place to live many times over last 20 yrs- Democratic mayors for longer than I’ve been here -25yrs). Come on all you New T
Yorkers and Cali folks Austin is home for you. However, we have no tolerance for Floridians north of the Miami dade zone, or anyone from a state that still wishes they could fly the rebel flag, that will for sure get you shot here now- thank god! And at least people here believe in science and tech instead of typical southern dumbass attitude led by a soon to be former president Chump that if they only knew what he really thought of the lemmings that follow him they would be pissed off. F’ing hypocrites support a man that insulted every military brother who ever served and yet these imbeciles still fly their ‘come n take it’ flags…believe me, as chump says, plenty of dudes who served out here and we will gladly take it from you w no hesitation at all.

And California has A LOT of federal lands where people can’t live….and other terrains that aren’t viable for habitation. Sure, we have the Everglades, Lake O, and some caverns up north, but California is denser than Florida. We also have no qualms with draining swamps for suburbs whereas California tries to actually preserve their natural lands.

California has mountains, Florida has swamps. The Federal Government has spent billions to restore swamps and are restoring them. Florida residents voted to keep out air polluting industries and that’s why you don’t see smoke stakes anywhere. Florida residents voted no to offshore oil drilling. Florida is trying right now to redefine itself as just being somewhere for tourist to visit. Tech companies are the one thing that Florida might get that residents won’t have to worry about so much.

Regardless the city, the nation should determine the cause(s) and propose solutions for the nation’s homeless problem. It’s a scourge and underlines what we value as Americans; clearly it’s not ensuring that all citizens are provided shelter, food and quality healthcare. As if we didn’t already know the causes, but have chosen instead to turn a blind eye, we’ve learned this from the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.
