Miami Seedlings Launches Fund, Business Incubator to Accelerate High-Growth Start-ups
South Florida’s growing start-up scene will get a boost by Miami Seedlings, a newly launched investment fund and business incubator with up to $50,000 in funding per company invested in.
The new incubator will fund up to $50,000 per company and provide business sustainability support. Services will include marketing strategy, legal advice, accounting, business development, app development, digital and lithographic printing, e-commerce fulfillment, and additional funding where needed.
“The unique value that Miami Seedlings can lend startups is our network of 12 successful companies with combined revenue of $30,000,000 and a workforce of over 400 people that will provide the technology support and creative talent to support the growth of incubators under our development,”
Miami Seedlings is also unique from other local incubators in that it has a special interest in web based companies whose business models rely on Internet fulfillment and direct mail. Through a strategic partnership with DTS Fulfillment and Direct Mail Services, Inc. - a company that is part of the Millenium Group - Miami Seedlings’ companies can fast track their growth using in-place e-commerce, fulfillment, and US based direct mail services.
Basic requirements to initiate the process to be considered by the incubator include:
1) A team of at least two founders – one with a technology background is preferable
2) An emerging company that will benefit from a software or web technology product and/or production services
3) Must be headquartered in Miami, Broward, or the Palm Beaches, with a majority of team member located within the South Florida region
4) A working prototype or business model for the company.
