OHUB@Campus is a branded, credible and vetted platform to provide colleges and universities and their respective administrators, faculty, and students with the exposure, knowledge, skills, job opportunities, startup connections, investment opportunities and tools to effectively and authentically access the global innovation, entrepreneurship and investment economy. Collaboratively, schools, companies, foundations and OHUB launch a sustainable technology centric workforce and new venture creation ecosystem from the ground up. Welcome to the ecosystem.
Opportunity Hub (OHUB) is the world’s leading inclusive innovation (tech), entrepreneurship (startup) and investment (wealth) ecosystem building platform. OHUB builds technology, programs and funds to ensure that socially and economically disadvantaged communities pursue and access high demand tech skills and careers, launch and grow high growth startups and invest in exclusive investment opportunities traditionally reserved for the rich. This is the path to the middle class, multi-generational wealth creation and beyond.
OHUB was founded in 2013 in Atlanta, GA by Rodney Sampson as a follow up to the highly successful Kingonomics’ conferences in Atlanta, GA and Washington, DC grew to become the largest black owned multi-campus entrepreneurship center and technology hub in the United States definitely focused on diversity, inclusion and equity as a business and investment thesis for the development of high demand technical talent and high growth startup companies. Each year, 15,000 people walked through OHUB’s doors to learn, engage, build & work.
In 2016, we pioneered HBCU@SXSW at SXSW, the largest interactive technology festival on the planet. To date, over 275 minority college students have had the opportunity to attend this immersive experience interview with technology companies and secure paid summer internships or full time jobs upon graduation. The trajectory of their high potential technology careers are in motion.
As it relates to increasing access to technology education, over 200 hundred underestimated Americans from low income communities were trained to code in an in-demand programming language and placed in paid internships, apprenticeships and/or full time work as entry level programmers creating an economic output of over $10,000,000 annually and growing. We’ve done good work but we can do more.
Our model is simple.
Aspiring innovators, entrepreneurs and investors apply for membership to OHUB via our technology to access our programs, resources, funding and opportunities to build wealth. Companies, foundations, municipalities, startup organizations, influencers and advocates sponsor OHUB chapters, labs and academies on college campuses or in their underutilized spaces.
