Immigrant Entrepreneur Expanding Third Company

DAVENPORT, Fla., Nov. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Immigrant entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of our nation's diverse economy. One local woman is demonstrating that in central Florida.

While the immigration issue itself is making heated headlines across the nation, the fact remains that immigrant entrepreneurs started 40 percent of the top Fortune 500 companies, including Google, Instagram and eBay, according to Partnership for a New American Economy. Overall, immigrant entrepreneurs contribute more than $775 billion annually to our nation's annual gross domestic product.

Local central Florida immigrant entrepreneur Birgit Daniel is doing her part. Daniel is an entrepreneur who grew up in Munich, Germany. After moving to Florida in 2000, Daniel launched a rental and property management company, Tropical Escape Vacation Homes, now a multi-million-dollar enterprise.

In 2015, Daniel launched her second company, Design2Rent, a design studio that filled the yet-unmet need for attractive home designs that produce a return on investment for vacation rental properties in central Florida.

This week, Daniel is taking another big risk and expanding her third company, Design2Live, creating more than 20 local full-time jobs in Davenport.

Design2Live is a 6,200-square-foot HGTV design studio with hundreds of furniture, finish and fabric options to choose from, including 14 modern-designed showrooms featuring affordable, luxury home furnishings and interior design inspiration. A preferred Lennar Homes Partner, Design2Live provides a one-stop approach to decorating residential homes. Daniel says that Design2Live is the only full-service showroom in the Four Corners area of central Florida.

"Design2Live specializes in a fully executed, affordable design for all residential homes," said Birgit Daniel. "We're excited to take the guesswork out of design and deliver high-quality, sophisticated furnishings and fabrics that look beautiful in any home."

On Nov. 11, the Design2LiveGrand Opening and Veterans Day celebration starts at 10 a.m. at the new showroom. C+C Music Factory is performing live on stage. Special guests include Rep. Scott Plakon, celebrity guest DJ Garret Lauer and McCormick Research Institute with its Horses & Heroes program, which aims to help veterans diagnosed with PTSD.
