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.
Over the course of his career in Nightlife, Justin has owned nearly every major nightclub in Miami beach, including Mansion, SET, Mokai, Louis Bar-Lounge and Cameo. Currently, Justin owns and operates Club Space and Libertine over on the Mainland, Bodega Tequila y Taqueria, Bodega at the American Airlines Arena, Halves & Wholes, Ricky’s, Radio Bar, and soon to open Firestone and Coconut Club.
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 noticed a shift in the market and 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.
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.
