Organizations are attracted to base their operations in Fort Lauderdale and Broward County, because the population here is highly educated, entrepreneurial and a large percentage of the workforce is multilingual. People travel for work and pleasure from Palm Beach County through Fort Lauderdale to Miami-Dade County regularly. Fort Lauderdale is often recognized as “The South Florida TechGateway” to Latin America especially when Microsoft’s Latin America regional headquarters were based here. IBM PC was developed in Boca Raton (the 1980s) and Motorola phone company was in Plantation where Magic Leap later occupied the space. Modernizing Medicine is based in Boca Raton, which is an electronic medical records and data company. List of tech companies also include e-Builder in Plantation; Citrix Systems, and Ultimate Software is headquartered in Weston; in Greater Fort Lauderdale with branch offices in Georgia, California Singapore, the United Kingdom, and Canada.
Many workshops and projects were planned for summer on global entrepreneurship, virtual reality and a health-tech hack-a-thon for under 30 in Miami when COVID-19 suddenly shutdown international borders and public spaces. My students and business partners patiently waited for the pandemic to end initially but we are now living with it for more than seven months! We are building a reliable and engaging online infrastructure that connects us to even the emerging markets in rural areas to empower entrepreneurship programs and training new professionals.
