Each month, FLFLA gathers the hungry startups and entrepreneurs of Miami and the surrounding area for an afternoon of free food, beer, community and great content. Join us for our launch on June 28th for great afternoon of eating, drinking, networking and learning.
Come hear local Bookigee founder & CEO Kristen McLean give us the download on her recent visit to (Zappos CEO) Tony Hseih's ambitious Downtown Project, whose mission is to redevelop fourteen square blocks of Las Vegas' blighted Freemont district into a lively live/work neighborhood in just 5 years. Kristen spent four days on the ground meeting with key leaders of the DPLV team, speaking with entrepreneurs in the project's 3 distinct co-working spaces, and talking directly with Tony about his creative & business goals for the project. The project is being driven by a $350M direct investment in the arts, education, small business, technology companies, and focal real estate redevelopment, with a remarkable emphasis on the idea of "return on community" and direct ownership of the project by the community members themselves. What are the creative lessons we can apply here in Miami as we continue to build our own unique startup ecosystem?

FLF (Free Lunch Friday) believes to feed our global economies we need to start by feeding our startups and entrepreneurs. And to do that we are launching FLF locations around the world where startups and entrepreneurs will gather on the last Friday of every month for real human interaction and community. At these locations you can connect with startups, entrepreneurs, mentors, experts, partners, and investors all while enjoying some free, beer, and community.
