Danilo Diaz-Granados, an investment advisor with Fireman Capital Partners in Miami, thinks young Hispanic entrepreneurs should come and live in Miami if they want to make money. Granados ran the numbers, and Miami’s gross domestic output is more than $140 billion a year. That economic production puts Miami in the top 15 cities in the United States. And Granados said more than 70 percent of Miami’s population is Hispanic. Hispanic businesses in Miami are doing business with countries in Latin America, and that is the main reason Miami’s economy is so strong.
Mr. Granados is from Venezuela, so he knows first-hand that Hispanic entrepreneurs can thrive in Miami. Granados left Venezuela and landed in Boston. He studied economics at Babson College, but he also took courses in film producing and retail merchandising. Danilo knew he had to move to Miami after graduation. Boston was nice, but Miami felt like home every time he visited during spring breaks. Danilo was offered a job with Fireman Capital Partners as an associate investment advisor. His first job was to research the Hispanic market, and identify market trends, buying habits, and investment possibilities. Granados discovered a wealthy segment of the Hispanic market living in Miami, and he began to develop a relationship with people in that group. It didn’t take Granados long to build an investment strategy that focused on Hispanic businesses in the United States, and in countries in other parts of the world.
The investment business was good to Granados. He was able to start a film company called Edge of Glory Films. His film company documents Hispanic life in Miami. Filming in Miami can be a challenge especially when Granados is busy investing money for his clients, But Danilo likes to keep busy doing what he does best. He is very active when he’s not working. One thing is certain. Danilo has found a new home in Miami and young Latino entrepreneurs have a new friend in Danilo Diaz-Granados.
