TEMPE, Ariz., March 22, 2021 /3BL Media/ - LifeGuides® announced its expansion of the company’s operations into Miami, in addition to its HQ in Phoenix and technology base in San Francisco. LifeGuides® is an HR benefit, which empowers employees to pick a certified Guide, who has successfully navigated the same personal growth or Life Challenge event faced now.

As a burgeoning tech hub, Miami enterprises attracted venture capital investment exceeding $1B in 2020. With startup founders and investors advancing the area’s ecosystem, this modern tech epicenter has seen a phenomenal rate of migration, given its healthy lifestyle, no state income tax, and appealing metropolis. This has created a dynamic community eager for sustainable, yet agile collaboration, fueled by innovation.

“Miami has many incredible entrepreneurial assets already in place, which will accelerate LifeGuides® trajectory – such as an amazing talent pool, a vibrant and fast-growing tech scene, access to peer entrepreneurial organizations, and a favorable business climate nurtured by Mayor Suarez,” commented Derek Lundsten, President & CEO. “With our foundational vision to support ‘Business be a Force for Good,’ the energy of the city, its impassioned people, and the high quality of life centered around wellbeing, create the perfect match. Miami quickly became the obvious choice, as an east coast hub and global expansion gateway for LifeGuides®.”

Miami’s Mayor, Francis Suarez, noted, “I love the LifeGuides vision and purpose to support all people in developing greater purpose and wellbeing in their lives.  I can say first-hand that I want to be a Guide, since service is a core value of mine, and I believe in the desire to do good in our community, as we do well financially for all stakeholders.  LifeGuides®, and many other start-ups, are building in our city, and both myself and our Venture Miami Team welcome LifeGuides® wholeheartedly.”
