Daniella Levine Cava unveils new Miami-Dade innovation fund

by carlislewillard

During her first in-person State of the County address, Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava announced the launch of an innovation fund to spur solutions for county problems.

Dubbed the Miami-Dade Innovation Authority, the fund will provide grants to local companies working on pollution, resiliency, housing, transit, health care and other issues.

It’ll launch with $9 million — $3 million apiece from the Knight Foundation, Citadel CEO Ken Griffin and Miami-Dade itself, pending County Commission authorization in March.

“We’ll make it faster and easier to innovate in the county,” she said, “and further position Miami-Dade as a world-class destination for high-growth companies.”
