Knight Foundation invests in cities where the Knight brothers once owned newspapers, supporting both authentically local and relevant national ideas.


What we look for

In South Florida, the home of the foundation, we support the creatives, entrepreneurs, innovators and agents of change who are shaping the region’s future.

We are investing in the spaces and events where they can meet and connect. The goal is to foster a startup culture, open to the broader community, that helps make Miami a place where ideas are built.
