John S. and James L. Knight Foundation

Headquartered in Miami, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation is a national foundation with assets exceeding $2.4 billion focused on strengthening democracy by fostering informed and engaged communities.  Its grant making in Miami aims to nurture a “startup culture,” supportive of creatives, entrepreneurs, innovators, and other agents of change generating new ideas that could shape South Florida’s future.  Reflecting this, in 2017 grants have been awarded to support the NewME Accelerator (a business accelerator for minority start-ups) and FIU Miami’s Urban Future Initiative, which seeks to inform a strategy to grow a broader, more inclusive innovation economy by identifying Miami’s key economic, occupational, creative, and technological assets.
