Join Us for an 1809 Capital and Miami Alumni Breakfast Networking Event!

Please join us for an 1809 Capital and Miami Alumni breakfast networking event on Wednesday, February 14th at Canopy in Menlo Park. We look forward to providing an update on the Fund’s progress. Tim Holcomb, Chair of the Department Entrepreneurship will also overview the department’s growth and strategic impact on Miami’s academic mission.

Miami’s John W. Altman Institute for Entrepreneurship recently won the 2024 Model Program Award, given annually to the top entrepreneurship program by USASBE (U.S. Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship).

Participants will also receive current market insights from Brian Wilcove (Miami ’95), Partner America's Frontier Fund and Charlie Friedland, Partner Glynn Capital. Hear their perspective on the impact Generative AI and Large Language Models are having on startup formation and growth opportunities. Many believe we are at the beginning of an exciting multi-year (possibly decade-long) technology and venture growth cycle. These developments are also strategic to future US global competitive advantage.
