    The Knight Foundation announced Thursday approximately $1.1 million in spending to spur entrepreneurship in Miami.

    Eight local groups will be awarded as much as $250,000 each. The largest grantee is Black Angels Miami, a soon-to-be-launched organization of black investors focused on increasing spending on minority-owned startups. Other recipients include Venture Cafe Miami, the Miami Herbert Business School, and the Idea Center at Miami Dade College.
