Greater Miami has many things going for it: beautiful weather, a thriving economy, and a unique, international culture. Also known as the Miami metro, the tri-county region that spans Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties is the nation’s eighth-largest metro. With an economic output of $300 billion, it’s about the size of Singapore and Hong Kong. The region is attracting people from the U.S. and abroad and boasts a foreign-born population three times larger than the U.S. average.1 Its renewed downtown skyline is filled with gleaming new high-rise condos and office towers. And its rapidly growing startup ecosystem is one of the 10 largest in the U.S. and among the top 30 or so in the world
