Looking Back This Month: Refresh Miami Threw an Awesome 10 Year Anniversary Party!
Written by Jocelyn Caster on 22nd November 2016, 3:21 PM
A couple weeks ago, hundreds of people gathered to celebrate Refresh Miami’s decade of leadership in change-making within the Miami area. We were proud to be one of many awesome sponsors at the event. With an open bar (we sponsored the🍻 ), free food, and lots of smart individuals with a similar goal in mind – making Miami a dynamic center of business and entrepreneurship – everyone had a great night!
Our story is inextricably linked with that of Refresh Miami’s. In fact, our very first student came through our relationship with Refresh Miami over two years ago. Since then, many more have come our way due to Refresh’s limitless support. We heavily value our friendship and connection with Refresh Miami, and look forward to continuing our mutual support of each other!
Beyond just Wyncode, Refresh is truly a spokesperson for the entire state of the Miami entrepreneurship scene. Both Wyncode and Refresh care about the state of entrepreneurship and tech in Miami as a whole, and we both have personal stakes in its growth in the future.
At the event, we asked attendees to tell us what they saw as the future of Miami tech. By the end of the night, it looked like this:
People thought Refresh was crazy ten years ago in trying to enliven the non-existing Miami tech scene. Our head instructor Ed Toro used to meet with the tiny original Refresh Miami crew in a coffee shop. Now they are the largest tech meeting in this region of the country. Ten years later, it’s pretty clear they were on to something…
We are honored to be involved with a great organization like Refresh Miami. What they have accomplished in the last decade paved the way to ours and many others’ successes in the area. Everyone here at Wyncode is full of anticipation to see what Refresh will accomplish in its next decade!
