Opportunity Zone Summit
As a pathway to economic prosperity initiative, City of Miami Mayor Francis X. Suarez will host an unprecedented 2-day Opportunity Zone Summit (OZ summit) on Friday, September 27, 2019 and Saturday, September 28, 2019 at the James L. Knight Center, Riverfront South Conference Room, located at 400 SE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33131.
Federal Opportunity Zones are a new community and economic development tool that aims to drive long-term private investment into low-income communities throughout the country. The City of Miami is seeking to utilize the program as an important tool to support the development of affordable housing, business development and job creation.
Over the 2-day period, the OZ Summit will bring to bear resources that are available with our federal partners. The first day will highlight prioritized federal resources for real estate development in OZs and provide a detailed overview of development trends in Miami’s OZ neighborhoods. The second day will highlight leveraging private equity with Small Business Investment Corporations (SBICs) and other federal resources for business acquisition, expansion, development and relocation to OZs. The OZ Summit will conclude with a pre-registration matchmaker bus tour of available sites for lease and purchase in Miami’s OZ.
