Congratulations Saif on Becoming Chairman of the eMerge Advisory Board

Gazitua Letelier would like to congratulate our Strategic Advisor Saif Ishoof on his recent appointment as Chairman of the eMerge Americas Advisory Board.

eMerge Americas

Saif will help advise eMerge Americas in building high-impact partnerships with leading tech companies, leaders, and institutions. He will also assist in building their world-class advisory board.

eMerge Americas states their goal as:

“transforming Miami into the tech hub of the Americas by partnering with the entire tech and entrepreneurial ecosystem, from government to higher-ed, startups to investors, corporate enterprises to media. We’re connecting the dots – between talent, capital and entrepreneurs. And we’re telling – and amplifying – the stories of how Miami is transforming. We’re attracting the best and the brightest from around the world to come to Miami to launch, build, and successfully scale their ideas. We believe Miami can serve as a gateway to the Americas and help bridge divides while fueling innovation and building out a sustainable, diverse and inclusive ecosystem.”

Manny Medina, formerly of Terremark, currently Managing Partner of Medina Capital, is the Founder and Chairman of eMerge Americas. Melissa Medina Jimenez, in addition to her duties as President of the Medina Family Foundation, serves as President. Their shared efforts have led to the tremendous success of eMerge Americas. The signature event, launched in 2014, a global tech conference held annually in Miami Beach, now attracts more than 16,000+ attendees from over 40 countries and has a speaker list with names like Serena Williams, Pitbull, Kevin O’Leary, and more.

A Proven Track Record

eMerge is in good hands with Saif. His past successes include assisting in the generation of $70 million in foundational support for FIU. He’s advised global tech and finance leaders in their Miami relocations goals for Mayor Suarez’s #MiamiTech movement. He’s also advised on several signature projects in the tech field to assist in the realization of Miami being the ‘Capital of Capital.’

Saif’s awards are numerous, with a Presidential Leaders Scholar, a Garman Marshall Fund, and a Silver Medallion from MCCJ. He is a proud Caribbean immigrant and his family has been pillars to the Miami-area community.

In addition to his duties as President of Lab22c, where he served founders, funders, and institutions in driving impact, Saif recently officially joined the Gazitua Letelier team, as Strategic Advisor on Innovation and #MiamiTECH.
