What an extraordinary evening onboard M/Y Eternity! Our November social was better than we ever expected as PBHFA members and guests mingled in the ultimate luxury aboard a superyacht. Members were treated to an array of luxurious food, drink and ambiance as deals and the economy were discussed. Venture capitalists interfaced with cutting-edge opportunities as hedge fund and money managers chatted with a variety of UHNW investors and market professionals.
I am aware of several pending deals, multiple friendships forged, and many peers reunited during the evening. Heartfelt thanks go out to our generous luxury sponsors for the evening Burgess Yachts, Codecasa, […] Read more
We are thrilled to announce a strategic partnership with Brightline. Owned by Fortress Investment Group, not only does Brightline eliminate the hassles of commuting between West Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, and Miami, but it is a great way to network. Every time I have traveled via Brightline, I have met very interesting and influential people on board. It’s more like private jet travel, in this regard than a commuter train! I highly recommend the service to everyone. DSG

From The Miami Herald
This summer, when former executives of Facebook, Google, eBay and other hyper-growth companies formed a global “city” based in Miami with everything a tech startup needs to scale internationally, they were missing one key element: the money.
But not anymore.
