Brian Siegal is the director of the Miami and Broward Regional Office for AJC (American Jewish Committee). Knight Foundation supports Project Interchange, AJC’s Israel educational institute, by investing in Miami’s emerging innovators and entrepreneurs as a tool to build community, while fostering talent and expanding opportunity.
This is a remarkable time in the world of innovation, and it’s been gratifying to see the investments Knight Foundation has made in entrepreneurship in Miami. While fostering innovation in South Florida, those efforts have forged strong connections with the international community and benefited from the experiences of innovators around the world. Therefore, the idea of taking a delegation of influential Miami entrepreneurs and leaders in the tech startup community to Israel with Project Interchange was a natural.
