How we're different
The Shrimp Society is a local and central entrepreneur hub where you can establish, network, & contribute to your community in a tangible way.
Right now, building a community is all over the place - Linkedin, Twitter, email, Slack, Clubhouse - It's a mess.
LinkedIn is too general - "Nice post 👍🏻" from a sales person in Virginia isn't helping me.
Twitter is too fleeting - its great for in the moment news, but difficult to have extended engagement on topics.
Facebook is too lame? - 😬There, we said it.
Instagram is too personal - It's OK not to mix personal & professional.
Slack is too boring - we look at it all day anyways.
Clubhouse is too intangible - If you missed the session, you missed all the value.
The Shrimp Society isn't trying to replace those platforms for what they are.
Instead, we are on a mission to provide a local platform for the community, by the community.
Miami's Tech & entrepreneurial ecosystem is booming.
We're seeing unparalleled enthusiasm, talent migration, and collaboration due to Miami's:
- Perfect harmony of lifestyle and opportunity
Growth of distributed & remote work
Foundation built by our community leaders over the past 10 years
Unmatched diversity of race, country, and culture - the perfect melting pot
Growing talent pool & programs
