About Me

Home  /  About Me

My name is Michael Farin. I am a serial entrepreneur and investor who has been developing websites and starting businesses since age 13. I’m a go-getter, a leader and a perfectionist, and I never give up.

I’m the Founder and CEO of Farin Innovations, Inc., a cutting-edge web design and development firm in Miami, Florida. I am the Co-founder & CTO of Optuno (an FI Holdings, Inc. company). Together with my dedicated 40-member team, I indulge my passion for the Internet and create awesome websites for incredible businesses.

The harder I work, the luckier I get.

I’m also the Co-Founder and Managing Partner of EndLayer, LLC, a high-end managed website hosting and IT solutions provider backed by 40 years of combined experience.

I was an owner & CTO of CancerInsurance.com, a leading online cancer and critical illness insurance platform prior to our acquisition in November of 2015. I also serve as an executive advisor at several other top web companies, including Basch Solutions & Frankel Interactive, where I’m the Director of Operations, and JBMF LLC, where I’m the co-founder and CTO.

Every day, I get to do what I love – creating new companies and using my technical expertise to grow them into major web presences. Here’s my advice to young entrepreneurs: Don’t invest in anything that doesn’t make you excited to get up in the morning.


- I graduated from Florida International University in 2010.

- I consider myself a “semi-pro fisherman”.

- I speak three languages (English, Spanish and Hebrew).

- I’ve never met anyone who can type faster than I can.
