How does this project impact the issue you selected?

Our experience in both the technology & entertainment sectors uniquely positions us to help young people see the power of what they can achieve with united voices. Ultimately, will use art and culture to galvanize youth to "vote" for what they believe in.

What data points from The Our Miami Report does your project address?

It makes the city not only the capital of the Americas, but of a global music movement. Ultimately, becomes a platform where youth can "vote" on anything. And which can drive capital from all over the world to Miami.

Please give examples of your project's success.

The beta platform launched in late October, after three months of intensive development. Our team has had experience building scalable tech platforms for hundreds of millions of users, as well as multiple media properties that have reached audiences of 100+ million.
