Our story


Opportunity Hub (OHUB) is the definitive future of work, opportunity and wealth creating platform to ensure that everyone, everywhere is equitably included with scalable access to the tech, startup and venture ecosystem; in demand technology education, training and careers; vetted entrepreneurial support programs and early stage capital; and investment opportunities as a path to multi-generational wealth with no reliance on pre-existing multi-generational wealth.

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 best selling conferences in Atlanta, GA and Washington, DC., grew to become the largest multi-campus co-working space, entrepreneurship center and technology hub in the United States specifically focused on authentic diversity, equity inclusion as a business and go to market thesis. Programs like CodeStart, YesWeCodeFund and OHUB.SXSW were created. Hundreds became software engineers. Over a thousand hired. #BlackAndHired.

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.
