Our Start

Opportunity Hub (OHUB) co-founded in 2013 in Atlanta, GA by Rodney Sampson as a follow up to the highly successful Kingonomics’ book release and large scale conferences in Atlanta, GA and Washington, DC, is the leading technology, startup, and venture ecosystem building platform created to ensure everyone, everywhere has equitable access to the future of work, fourth industrial revolution and beyond as a path to multi-generational wealth creation with no reliance on pre-existing multi-generational wealth.

Our Safe Spaces

We opened our first 7,500 s/f campus in downtown Atlanta at 200 Peachtree in the summer of 2013. In September 2014, we added 14,000 s/f with our expansion to West Midtown’s Giant Lofts and the historic Westside historic in a joint venture with the late Herman J. Russell. In late 2015, we partnered with some local entrepreneurs and venture capitalists to open a 25,000 s/f campus in Georgia Tech’s Technology Square. This partnership has invested in over 40 high growth tech startups that have raised more than $400 million in follow on capital, are valued at $1.5 billion US and employ more than 2,000 people. Currently, OHUB operates a space in the historic 18th & Vine District in Kansas City, Mo and on the campus of Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA.
