Miami just turned 120 years-old, and the city has also turned into a Latino city. More than 70 percent of the population Miami-Dade’s population is Hispanic. According to a recent Pew Hispanic report, 13 percent of that 70 percent is from Puerto Rico, and 54 percent is from Cuba. Other countries like Venezuela, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras, and Brazil are also represented. More than 66 percent of Miami’s Latinos are born in a foreign country, according to the same report. Miami offers people from other countries the opportunity to grow culturally as well as financially. Danilo Diaz Granados, the Venezuelan-born entrepreneur, is one of the people that is helping Latinos grow financially.
Danilo Diaz Granados left Venezuela to study in the United States. Danilo was accepted by Babson College in Boston. Granados took college seriously, and he graduated with bachelor degree in Entrepreneurship and Economics. He loved Boston, but he knew the land of opportunity for him was Miami. As shown on his Facebook Danilo moved to Miami, and he was hired by the investment firm, Fireman Capital Partners. Danilo became the man charge of researching global issues that could potentially impact equity investments. Those equity investments included hedge funds and the development of innovative startups. Granados also did environmental analysis work that gave him information about the demographics and social factors that influence businesses. Granados was able to advise his Hispanic investors accordingly. Thanks to his dedication and astute understanding of Hispanic investors, the Granados client list continued to grow faster than other investment advisors.
But Granados also wanted to use his entrepreneurial training in Miami. His investment business was turning into a very successful venture. He learned more about the likenesses and the differences that exist in the Hispanic community. He decided to start Edge of Glory Films to document Hispanic life in Miami. Granados produces, edits, promotes and distributes his films. His film company gives people information about Hispanic interests and accomplishments in Miami as well as in other countries.
