In Miami, the home of the foundation, we are supporting the creatives, entrepreneurs, innovators and agents of change who are shaping the region’s future.
We are investing in the spaces and events where innovators, entrepreneurs, investors and academics 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.
