StartUP FIU began in January 2016 as a part of Florida International University’s efforts to address both the opportunities and challenges of this new industrial revolution. It is a platform that supports researchers, inventors, innovators and entrepreneurs to conceive, launch and scale solutions.
There is no better place to test new solutions than Miami, a city that is at the epicenter of challenges like sea-level rise, transportation infrastructure and income inequalities. At StartUP FIU, we see challenges as opportunities. We believe opportunities to shape the Fourth Industrial Revolution should be provided to anyone who has the insight, tenacity and understanding of market opportunity. Therefore all of the programming and events are available to students, faculty, alumni and the community typically at no cost.
