With 122 companies on the 2014 Inc. 5000, Miami has proven itself as a popular destination for business, as well as fun in the sun. Maybe it’s the growing ecosystem of incubators and co-working spaces, or maybe its the increase in younger talent moving to the area. Whatever it is, Miami is a city to watch.
