INSIDE MIAMI INTERVIEW #1 - IDB SUNDAY EDITION author Daniel Smith interviews VirtualBadge co-founder Georges Duplessy
Dear Inside Daily Brief Sunday Edition readers,
I hope you have been enjoying the IDB Sunday Edition over the last few weeks. I am excited to share with you the first of many interviews I will be doing as part of our new Inside Miami series. I am documenting the burgeoning #MiamiTech scene and am very pleased to share my interview with VirtualBadge co-founder Georges Duplessy. VirtualBadge was one of the two companies that won the Miami Startup Showdown, a pitch competition that I covered in a recent feature article for Inside.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Georges with fellow Insider Landon Campbell. We talked about a variety of topics, ranging from the evolution of the Miami tech scene and ecosystem, to how an interest in technology at a young age can help one become an entrepreneur and technologist later in life, the role of social media in tech community building, and how public speaking training can help to improve one's ability to communicate in all aspects of life.
