NORTH MIAMI – Last week, City of North Miami Councilwoman Kassandra Timothe, MPA – who represents District 2 – presented the first annual “Teach to Fish” North Miami Business Summit, in partnership with the City of North Miami and North Miami Community Redevelopment Agency (NMCRA). The summit provided resources, education, and assistance to over 200 guests during the three-day event, October 23-25.
North Miami residents seeking to grow or start a successful business were welcomed by community and business leaders and participated in more than 25 workshops, including funding guidance, business planning, business structure, operations, branding, marketing, and more, to help local entrepreneurs further their knowledge and skills.
Onsite advisors were available at the summit for one-on-one meetings regarding upcoming grants and funding programs available through the North Miami Community Redevelopment Agency (NMCRA), an independent agency working to revitalize North Miami’s community redevelopment area, and a partner of the business summit.
“The NMCRA is proud to support small businesses in the North Miami community through our grant funding programs,” said Cornelius Shiver, Executive Director of the NMCRA. “Councilwoman Timothe’s impressive work with this year’s North Miami Business Summit allows us to engage further with new and seasoned small business owners and continue to create a small business paradise right here in North Miami.
