Pareto Holdings Invests in Miami’s Entrepreneur Scene

To help further drive the tech entrepreneurial scene in South Florida, Pareto Holdings recently developed The Pareto Fellowship, a five-day virtual event consisting of mentorship coaching from top executives around Miami.

The program will allow participants the chance to interact with local leaders and other entrepreneurs and investors in various industries. Miami’s Mayor Francis Suarez and SoftBank Group International CEO Marcelo Claure are among the mentors offering their expertise during the program.

“We created Pareto Holdings and our fellowship program with the goal of bringing more opportunities to new or aspiring founders in growing tech hubs like Miami,” says Jon Oringer, a Pareto Holdings partner, who also founded Shutterstock. “There really are no limitations—we may find 10 people to execute on their ideas or ours, or companies and founders that we want to back and support, but it could be more. We are really excited to extend this opportunity to help build world-changing companies, with an incredible group of experienced executive leaders to help these entrepreneurs through their journey and a splash of sunshine.”

(Fun fact: Oringer purchased the former Miami Beach home of Alex Rodriguez for a record-breaking $42 million last fall.)

The virtual fellowship program lasts from June 7 through June 11 and will focus on how to build startup technology companies including guidance on financing, hiring and operations.

Pareto Holdings was created by Oringer and Edward Lando, CEO of Goody Gifting. The company has made over 100 investments in startup companies involved in the telemedicine, fintech and e-commerce industries, with the goal of another 100 investments by the end of the year.

Other executives expected to attend the mentorship program include the creators of Atom Finance, Lido, Misfits Market, Rebate, Smartrr, Rowgatta, Mogul Games, Papa, and REEF Technology.

“We are thrilled to be joined by this incredible group of founders and CEOs who are eager to help us build world-changing companies and mentor bright new entrepreneurs, whether they have an early-stage startup, an idea, or just the grit to lead one of our companies,” says Lando, a Pareto Holdings partner. “The week-long program will be a crash course that will truly help accelerate ideas and get some exciting new businesses off the ground in a collaborative environment.”

Prospective entrepreneurs and other startup companies can apply for the virtual event at https://www.pareto20.com/apply by May 15.

Drew Limsky



Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
