Seven50 took a step towards planning for the future last week, hosting an event for involved young community members in Miami. New Leaders Lean Forward: Building the Region’s Creative Class for a Next-Generation Future sought to start the conversation on what kind of growth and collaboration will be necessary for Miami and the entire South Florida region to flourish in the upcoming 50 years. Creative entrepreneurship has been exploding with the emergence of collaborative spaces and resources for start-ups, and the event showed the eagerness of the community to grow and produce. Six panelists from many prominent interest groups spoke to a passionate, involved crowd, as the event was streamed and live tweeted to great success.
