Beacon Council Economic Development Foundation
The One Day project team chose to focus on connecting students with industries that have been identified as growth industries in Miami. To inform this effort, our team referred to the Beacon Council’s Target Industry Strategies report.
The purpose of this Target Industry Strategies report is to provide Miami-Dade County with a roadmap for its future economic development initiative, One Community One Goal. This report provides strategic recommendations aimed at growing jobs and creating long-term sustainable economic prosperity in Miami-Dade County. It coordinates all economic development activities, not just Beacon Council’s targeted marketing, and is design to be holistic. Implementation will require involvement by a broad spectrum of Miami-Dade County organizations. The seven areas identified as growth industries in Miami are:
Hospitality & Tourism
Information & Technology
International Banking & Finance
Life Sciences & Health Care
Trade & Logistics
