Techcrunch Founder Says Miami Is Now The World’s Best Place For Entrepreneurs: ‘So Perfect Right Now’

The founder of Techcrunch says there is no better place to be than Miami right now.

Michael Arrington, who was once named by Time Magazine as one of the most influential people in the world, wrote in a Twitter thread that Miami is “so perfect right now,” and explained why.

Part of the reason is the weather, but Arrington explained that it is much more than that.

Miami “is alive in a way that Seattle and San Francisco are not,” Arrington said. The city is vibrant, diverse and on the rise, in a way that reminded him of what Silicon Valley once was.

Another factor is that Miami has the “best big city mayor in the country by a mile” in Francis Suarez, Arrington wrote.

Arrington urged anyone able to move to Miami to do so. ” I don’t think there is a better place for entrepreneurs on the planet right now than Miami,” he said.

Moving to Miami “significantly increases your chances of success,” Arrington added.

So why companies are still choosing Austin, Atlanta, Charlotte and Dallas over Miami? We only get the big honchos of hedge funds to buy a house here to pretend they live here to invest and divert their revenues to a low tax state.

Companies chose those other cities because people have easier/cheaper access to reasonable housing and educational facilities. It is also less of a culture change, which although it is sad to admit is something that probably holds back a lot of relocation to SFL in comparison to these other cities.

That is not true.
For instance, the founder of Softbank’s Vision fund relocated to Miami and discussed their new $100M Miami Fund and the success of their LATAM funds…he was very bullish on their portfolio companies locating in Miami and Miami in general. He’s not a white male (heaven forbid!)

There are some companies moving down a substantial number of jobs….Zumper, Subway, AVA Labs, etc. are all bringing 100+ jobs each to Miami, but your point is well taken….Miami’s economy still revolves around hospitality and service, which won’t change any time soon. Also, housing affordability is a huge issue that all companies have to take into account.

True. There are plenty of northern universities that are better, but it is not as if there is no talent in Miami. Not only that, many of those Universities are training the Miami workforce. That is fine.
The comments were in reaction to the “we need” more Universities to get excited. I would simply say that it is a very strong “want” and not necessarily a need.

certainly miami is not the right place for weed/psychadelics drug legalization entrepreneurs as just one example of the closemindedeness of miami. not saying that’s good or bad – but different cities are better for different folks. being a lesbian punk environmentalist techie – probably better off in Portland or Seattle. Not everyone is the same. if you are against the embargo in Cuba or for alternative politics or think outside the mainstream – you will be screamed at in Miami. its a great place if you are a conservative entrepreneur – and that’s great for those people – but if you are not – there are better places. The country shouldn’t be the same everywhere – and miami offers many advantages for a certain type of person.

ACI Worldwide moves the Headquarters to S. Florida.

“In exchange for the economic incentives, ACI Worldwide agreed to create 182 jobs that pay an average salary of $180,000 per year.”

I think that there are a couple of jobs that locals would be interested in filling, and certainly those Miamians who went away to school, can come on back. For anyone reading this who doesn’t make $182,000 year, and you would like to….quickly enroll in the MDC training programs. The $9M buildout of the office space will take longer that you can achieve the skills needed to fill those positions!

All these tech guys locating to Miami are really going to enjoy trying to find local talent. News flash, there isn’t any. Their grandiose plans of hiring “200+ employees” will ultimately result in the hiring of almost no locals and instead of 200+ jobs, their Miami office will have a dozen execs and a few exec assistants fro.oit of town enjoying the miami sights and sounds. There is just near zero tech talent in Miami. I wish it were not the case, but this is the reality.

Also, the first time all these new transplants go through a bad hurricane season they are going to run for the valley and never come back. “What do you mean no electricity for 3 weeks? What do you mean my whole home standby generator only runs for 3 days and then runs out of fuel and there is no more fuel to buy? What do you mean there is nobody to fix my leaky roof for 9 months? Why is my house leaking, I have hurricane shutters? What do you mean my hurricane insurance deductible is 10% of the insured value of my home? What do you mean I have no coverage for mold – my roof leaked and there was no electricity for 3 weeks, of course I got mold! Who will pay for that?”

When I speak with recent transplants, the vibe I am getting is that the sophisticated ones are going back soon, and the less sophisticated ones will be going back a little later.

I hope all of this does not happen, but when it does it will be a rude awakening.
