Miami Girls Foundation and Design District Miami present 2022 Miami Founders Award to recognize top 30 companies and women-founders behind them.
To celebrate the legacy of Miami as the only major American city founded by a woman, Miami Girls Foundation in partnership with Design District Miami will recognize 30 leaders, innovators and activists who define Miami’s business, tech, start-up, healthcare, and fashion.
Miami Founders Award was created with a grant from Knight Foundation in 2020 to share the stories of female founders in the city, to discuss the challenges women founders are facing, and to recognize their achievements.
The Miami Founders Award ceremony will take place on Tuesday, April 26, 2022 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the Paradise Palaza event space at the Design District Miami.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors all the proceeds from the tickets sales will support Miami Girls Foundation’s mission to empower women and girls in South Florida.
