Michael Capponi

CATEGORY: Entrepreneurs
COMPANY: Capponi Group Corporation
INDUSTRY: Real Estate / Nightlife

WHAT MAKES HIM HAUTE: While his nightlife ventures may have put him on the map, it was his other businesses (Capponi Group Luxury Properties, Capponi Building Company and Capponi Casa) that caught the fickle attention of Miami’s luxe-seeking crowd. From revamping Miami Executive Airport to major home renovations—including JR and Loren Ridinger’s Casa de Sueños—Capponi is at the center of the city’s entrepreneurial scene, as well as the philanthropic one. Following the devastating earthquake in Haiti, he went to the island nation to see what he could do to help and ended up building a proper camp for hundreds of families on a soccer field after collecting donated tents here in the U.S. The whole endeavor took the talented businessman three days and cost less than $5,000. It is a testament to the difference one person can make.’’
