  • "What [Miami Tech Works] has become now is a real supportive movement. I think the approach that we’re taking is the right approach — integrating the private sector very, very closely into this and trying to structure it so that we can take advantage of new hungry talent that wants to get into the field and basically be a highway for them into the positions."

Over the last few years, South Florida has been among the U.S. metro areas with highest growth in tech job creation. The region has also witnessed significant increase in student enrollment numbers across tech programs offered by local academic institutions and training providers. However, many graduates from these education programs ultimately leave South Florida after they are unable to find a tech job locally, while companies are desperate to find talent. The disconnect between both sides is the challenge the Miami Tech Talent Coalition will solve at a regional level.

While the coalition is made up of employers, training providers, and community organizations, the coalition itself has a group of founding organizations committed to the success of the Tech Talent Coalition. Those founding organizations are:

  • Miami-Dade County
  • City of Miami
  • Miami-Dade Beacon Council
  • Refresh Miami
  • Miami Dade College
  • Florida International University
  • OIC of South Florida
  • Florida Memorial University
  • CareerSource South Florida
