OUR WORK

Our vision is to…

leverage the genius of all people, regardless of ethnicity, gender, or class. We envision an economy where access, opportunity, and prosperity are shared.

Genius is equally distributed across zip codes. Access and Opportunity are not.   Impact Ventures is here to change that.

Our mission is to…

empower talented, yet under-estimated Communities of Color to build generational wealth through inclusive entrepreneurship, community wealth building, and integrated capital.

Our mission in action looks like…

We believe our communities already possess the genius necessary to lead vibrant, healthy, and stable lives. Through direct entrepreneurial support services, equitable investing, and community wealth building we manifest our greatest equalizer in closing the wealth divide. By creating more equitable and diverse economic systems, we work towards an economy where access, opportunity, and prosperity are shared.
