Inclusive Ecosystem Building

Inclusive innovation, entrepreneurship and investment ecosystems can be built anywhere. The essence of an entrepreneurial ecosystem is its people and the culture of trust and collaboration that allows them to interact successfully. An inclusive ecosystem allows for the fast development and flow of authentically diverse talent, information and resources so that entrepreneurs can quickly find what they require at each stage of growth. As a result, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Ecosystem building is the leading model for modernized economic development and the catalyst for net new venture, job and wealth creation.

OHUB builds technology and partners with colleges, universities, corporations, foundations and municipalities to build and launch inclusive innovation (tech), entrepreneurship (startup) and investment (wealth) ecosystems from the ground up.
