Join Opportunity Hub (OHUB), Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. and Friendship Foundation as we celebrate the announcement of EXEQ, the first global future of work, startup entrepreneurship and wealth creation initiative between a leading technology, startup and venture ecosystem building platform and a historically Black greek-letter organization.

Context

People of color are facing the possibility of permanent poverty and underclass citizenship and existence due to job automation because of robotics, artificial intelligence and machine learning. By 2053, the median wealth for Black American families is projected to be zero; 2073 for Latinx Americans. Today, median Black and Hispanic American wealth (assets minus liabilities) is $17,000 and $20,000, respectively. Innovation, technology and high growth startup entrepreneurship are the greatest contributors to income inequality and poverty in the 21st century – unless we work to ensure that people of color are equitably represented. Participating in the innovation economy at all viable levels isn’t an option for anyone, especially people of color. It must be an absolute focus for all of us if we are going to escape the aggregate permanent reality of poverty in our communities. For the first time in history, technology and high growth startup entrepreneurship affords the opportunity to build multi-generational wealth with no reliance on multi-generational wealth.

To ensure that the global African Diaspora and beyond are equitably participating in this future, OHUB, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. and Friendship Foundation are joining forces to launch EXEQ.

EXEQ will be the first global technology, high growth entrepreneurship, investment and wealth creation initiative between a leading inclusive ecosystem building organization and historically black Greek-letter organization. The membership-based initiative will combine the shared cost benefits and convenience of a co-working space with the technical support and content of a start-up incubator. EXEQ will provide opportunities to access workshops, training, funding resources and business mentorship for innovators and entrepreneurs as they grow ideas and potential into viable businesses.

Built on a tiered membership based model, the initiative will provide the undergraduate and graduate members of the fraternity, citizens of Dekalb County and Metro Atlanta; and the global community that Omega touches with access to the exposure, knowledge, jobs, entrepreneurship support resources and capital required to ensure that everyone, everywhere, especially persons from the African Diaspora are equitably empowered for the future of work, fourth industrial revolution and beyond as a path to multi-generational wealth with no reliance on multi-generational wealth.

Starting membership will be waived for financial brothers and their invites; and will include immediate access to OHUB’s career, startup and investment opportunities. Members will also receive access to LinkedIn’s premium courses, AppleOne’s career agents and Capway’s financial literacy curriculum and tools.

In the near future, members will be able to upgrade their membership to receive premium knowledge and programming and varying levels off co-working space and amenities at the 5-acre Omega World Center in Decatur, GA.

The evening will include authentic networking, celebration and a much needed conversation in collaboration with HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society) and Accenture on how authentic diverse, equitable and inclusive innovation, entrepreneurship and investment can impact the social determinants of health that impact the Black community and beyond.
