It's been a minute but we're so excited to be able to invite you to join us
for the in-person return of TechBeach Retreat from October 27-28, 2022. The premier event for innovation, entrepreneurship and investment connecting Latin America, the Caribbean and North America is back and our first stop will be none other than the world famous Miami Beach.
This meeting of the minds aims to amplify investment and partnership surrounding how technology, digital solutions, and new business models can drive economic growth and integration across the aforementioned regions. As such, we're creating an agenda built around some of the greatest minds in global tech.
This year's speakers include:

Chairman and CEO of Mana Common, Moishe Mana, is a billionaire entrepreneur committed to creating and improving neighborhoods. Arriving in the United States from an impoverished neighborhood in Tel Aviv, Israel, in the early 1980’s, Mana grew a small logistics business into a global real estate empire. He began purchasing warehouse space leading him into the storage industry, where eventually he created GRM, which remains one of the top three document management companies in the US. It was not long before Mana realized that his actions as a business owner had a significant impact on areas he operated in, and that this activity could be harnessed to deliberately create an ecosystem and change the fabric of an entire community.
