Foley is positioned as a thought-leader alongside WIT and this was a tremendous opportunity to showcase our Miami office to tech startups and entrepreneurs alike. South Florida is experiencing undeniable momentum to develop a thriving tech hub and startup ecosystem. The partnership with WIT on this event allowed Foley to be part of the movement and introduce the firm as a resource for legal and business needs.
The Foley and WIT Miami event took place at Milk & Honey in Wynwood, home to local startups and creative industries. It was an event that featured cutting-edge headset technology from one of South Florida’s very own startups, Silent Revolution. The headsets allowed three simultaneous presentations for participants to dial into with no disruption or outside noise.
Participating from Foley Miami: Laura Ganoza, Rosana Gutierrez and Larry Perlman. Each Foley attorney was paired up with an entrepreneur to discuss real life scenarios and ways to scale up startups. The dynamic duos covered topics relating to IP protection, labor and employment matters, and corporate and funding opportunities.
Milk & Honey was created by Ivette Naranjo, the owner as Cafeina Wynwood Lounge. As a pioneer of Wynwood, Ivette has paid close attention to not only the development of the neighborhood, but she oversaw the success of Cafeina. People want to be part of the Wynwood District, and having an event like a silent disco in Wynwood is appealing to them, yet the event spaces in the area are so large, including Cafeina [7,500 square feet]. She then decided to build Milk & Honey. It’s a private 2,500-square-foot event space with its own private garden. It’s basically a blank canvas that can take any form — a dream venue space for event such as a silent disco in Miami.
The beauty of Milk & Honey is that there are no constraints to the imagination of the client. We would also like to have corporate luncheons, meetings, trade shows, pop-up events, product launches, monthly events, and wedding ceremonies.
Milk & Honey has its tall ceilings and beautiful gray-stained floors, which gives the venue a clean slate to any event. With a portable bar, full catering options, and sleek decor that can assume a different identity with lighting. The difference is its size and privacy. You can have a small private event and feel cozy. It’s not just a big warehouse; it’s an actual space. Also, the importance of location is evident with the demand of venue spaces in Miami, especially in this growing neighborhood. Events are getting away from venues in South Beach and Brickell, so we are confident that Wynwood is the new events epicenter of Miami.
