Refresh Miami is a free community for entrepreneurs and founders in the technology field that help members to boost their careers.
The community has a free option. Free members can register to create a profile on the community's platform. This allows them to follow other members/companies and send private messages. Additionally, the free membership allows you to access the member directory, which is very useful to find people with similar interests.
Refresh Miami also offers a job board for members to find their next career opportunity. Moreover, the community organizes several engaging events. These include educational workshops, talks with industry experts, and networking events. Most learning events are online while networking events often happen in different locations around Miami.
On the other hand, you can get a "Contributor" membership for $10/month. This allows you, besides getting all the benefits from the free membership, to post roles on the job board and hire new talent for your company.

"Refresh was how I was introduced to Miami's tech scene. I was working as a developer in advertising and started attending Refresh events where I was exposed to people building products and companies. Fast forward 6 years and I have built two businesses and exited one, both of which I pitched at Refresh's Demo Days." -Juan Bermudez
