Miami is an international hub for investment with a strategic positioning as a central area to all of the Caribbean and Latin America. The city has fewer restrictions compared to many older and more established cities, making it a perfect spot for entrepreneurs. Well, Danilo Diaz Granados has spotted many untapped business opportunities in the city.
Danilo Diaz Granados is a cofounding partner of Toys for Boys, a luxury boutique located in Miami. Mr. Granados founded the company with his associate, Rafael Gill after noticing that the luxury market in Miami was largely untapped. Mr. Granados realized that Miami men, who are mostly Latin, needed a single store where they could shop for a variety of items.
The two entrepreneurs used this luxury concept to establish Toys for boys in 2013. The boutique is a showroom that sells rare cars, timepieces and modern art to men who can afford them. Since inception, the boutique has gained an excellent reputation and received many prominent personalities. Today, the boutique has customers like Jorn Werdelin, Miami HEAT’s Juwan Howard, Tomas Regalado and Roger Mason Jr. Danilo has appreciated his customers by hosting unique parties filled with fun activities. Last summer he held another yet remarkable event that was attended by a few selected Miami guests.
Danilo Diaz Granados is also the founder of Edge of Glory Films, a video production company based in Miami. Approximately 70% of Miami’s population is Hispanic, and for this reason, Mr. Granados saw it fit to establish a film company to produce films relevant to the Hispanic community. He founded the company in 2012 and has been responsible for production, editing, and marketing of content.
Besides the entrepreneurial roles, Mr. Granados works for Movilway as a manager. He is also an investment advisor at Fireman Capital Partners where he conducts research on factors that affect businesses and startup. He uses his analysis results to advise investors.
Danilo Diaz Granados studied Economics and Entrepreneurship at Babson College. Danilo holds a master’s degree in Business Administration from IE Business School. Danilo started his career as an investment advisor when he completed his undergraduate studies. He worked for several investment companies in Miami before venturing into his businesses.
