Collab is a new company designed to connect black entrepreneurs with the resources and networks they need to be successful. Our primary goal is to increase opportunities to build wealth through entrepreneurship and positively impact our community as a result. Collab will also engage educational/governmental institutions to ensure proper infrastructure and pipelines are in place to support the growth of black tech entrepreneurship over time.

We create growth opportunities for early stage black owned businesses by connecting black founders to corporate/social influencers through customized investment programs. Through these programs we steer our portfolio companies to increased revenue and profitability, in lieu of raising valuations through traditional venture capital funding.
