Justin Levine is a man of many hats, all of which sport a New York Yankees logo. Levine found his calling in serial entrepreneurship at an early age, when his childhood lemonade stand took off and he gained a controlling interest in all other neighborhood stands and paper routes. From there, he launched a career in nightlife management with his promotional company, Empire Events. This was one of the first such companies in the nation to pioneer Internet marketing, text message marketing, and celebrity procurement for nightclubs.
With a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing and Business Law from the University of Miami, and a Master’s Degree in Entrepreneurship and Marketing, Levine has expanded beyond nightlife to include fine dining restaurants, bars, fast-casual eateries, vitamin and health supplements, and a number of internet based referral companies.
Currently, Justin owns and operates Icon Hospitality, a full-service marketing and management firm, which owns numerous popular venues in Miami, including Club Space, ICON Nightclub, Mokai Lounge, SET Nightclub, Libertine, Bodega Tequila y Taqueria, Bodega at Dolphins Stadium, and soon to open, Ricky’s.
As a highly motivated deal junkie, Levine thrives and continues to expand and create new businesses in variety of exciting markets. Justin’s latest passion project is the development of a monetization platform that is the first of its kind. Be on the lookout for Collide upon its completion in the very near future.
Levine’s philanthropic interests include the Young Presidents Club of Mt. Sinai Hospital in Miami Beach, and The Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida.
