Opportunity Hub (OHUB) is the world's leading authority and platform for inclusive ecosystem building.
Opportunity Hub, co-founded in 2013 in Atlanta, GA by Rodney Sampson as a follow up to the highly successful Kingonomics’ conferences grew to become the largest multi-campus entrepreneurship center and technology hub in the United States specifically focused on diversity and inclusion as a business thesis for the development of high demand technical talent and high growth startup companies.
After a successful merger with TechSquare Labs in late 2015, Sampson worked closely with Dr. Paul Judge and Allen Nance to launch a technology hub, corporate innovation lab and venture fund that now boasts 22 portfolio companies that have gone on to raise follow on capital of over $200 million, created over 500 new jobs and $75 million in revenue. TechSquare Labs is the host of the quarterly $100,000 Atlanta Startup Battle.
Opportunity Hub simultaneously began to productize its success in Atlanta in order to expand and scale globally.
Today, OHUB as it is affectionately known has re-positioned herself as an inclusive innovation, entrepreneurship and investment ecosystem building platform focused on four proven methodologies as a definitive path to disrupting poverty and the racial wealth gap in socially disadvantaged communities and beyond. These four methodologies are early exposure, education & training, ecosystem building and capital formation. HBCU@SXSW is the company’s flagship event held every year in Austin, TX. To scale its current work to date, opportunity hub is building a suite of collaborative and interconnected technology products, programs and experiences.
"The Kingonomics' philosophy is that we must invest in the innovation, entrepreneurship and investment ecosystem to withdraw from innovation, entrepreneurship and investment ecosystem."
