“Moving to Miami” Discussion with Foundrs of Scoutible, Agent Nateur and Brave Health at Soho Beach House.
Join founders Angela Antony, Jena Covello and Anna Lindow in conversation moderated by Natalia Martinez-Kalinina as they talk about their experiences relocating to Miami. Miami has been consistently ranked #2 among the cities with the highest numbers of female-owned businesses, however, most of those businesses don’t scale. What is missing in Miami that other cities have? What are the obstacles contributing to gender wealth and funding gaps in the city? Are there new available resources in place and how can they be accessed?

About the Speakers:
Angela Antony is Founder & CEO of Scoutible, the first gamified predictive professional network designed to help anyone find and achieve their purpose. Scoutible’s award-winning core game IP, developed by scientists from Harvard and Stanford, is an RPG that can uncover a person’s unique professional superpowers in minutes. Prior to founding Scoutible, Antony spent 9 years at Harvard studying psychology, law, and business with a focus on labor market policy. She then worked at the White House zeroing in on one issue – more than 50% of all new hires fail because the most accurate and unbiased hiring criteria known to exist—personality and cognitive strengths—are never measured in the hiring process. Antony founded Scoutible to bring the power of psychology and science to hiring. Scoutible is backed by Mark Cuban, NEA, Stanford University and other top investors passionate about the future of work.

Statement from Angela Antony: "The incredible community budding in Miami today reminds me so much of when I first arrived in Silicon Valley. As a tech founder — especially as a female, minority founder — I've found an unparalleled community of welcoming builders, innovators, and thought leaders coming together in Miami to reimagine the future — like the incredible event happening today at Soho House. It's with my deepest regret that I am unable to meet all of you tonight, but I hope to see you at the very next opportunity. Let's build the future together in this magical city. "
