Opportunity Hub Partners With Kingonomics & Digit To Launch #WealthMonth
Over 50 Free Events Open To The Public
Atlanta, Georgia – February 1, 2015 – Historically known as Black History Month throughout America, Opportunity Hub has partnered with Kingonomics and Digit to launch #WealthMonth in an effort to address our nation’s poverty and wealth gap with innovation, entrepreneurship and access to capital being presented as the solution.
Throughout the month of February, Opportunity Hub (OHUB) will be hosting the “Wealth Month” event series inspired by Rodney Sampson’s best selling book, KINGONOMICS: Twelve Innovative Currencies for Transforming Your Business & Life, Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Wealth Month series focuses on educating its participants on definitive solutions to close the wealth gap in America by saving money, starting and scaling growth oriented businesses and learning how to invest via tools such as crowdfunding and angel investing. As the nation’s largest minority owned multi-campus coworking space, entrepreneurship school and incubator, Opportunity Hub invites existing and aspiring innovators, entrepreneurs and investors to participate in over 50 educational based events designed specifically for Wealth Month.
During February, #WealthMonth’s lead sponsor, Digit, a silicon valley venture backed financial technology company that helps people automatically and intelligently save money without thinking about it, will contribute five ($5) dollars for every new user that signs up for the free service. OHUB will use the monies to grow its seed investment fund and code school scholarships designed to engage more underrepresented minority (URM) communities in tech and startup culture. Digit’s service is free and easy to use. Campaign supporters can try out the service here, https://digit.co/r/ohub
Featured programming includes over 30 introductory daily classes at OHUB’s campuses, including a legislative hearing on Georgia’s Angel Investor Tax Credit under The Gold Dome, a 1-day Accelerator with TiE, 2 Hackathons, FinTech Forum & Pitch Day with Village Capital, SXSW Meetup, and the 1st SBA HBCU Millennial Trep Day. OHUB Mentors In Residence are committed and dedicated to closing the wealth gap by presenting innovating tools for saving money, teaching everyday citizens to start and scale growth oriented businesses and creating a pipeline of small, large and institutional investors and stakeholders.
The highlighted event of the month is the Ten Thousand Innovators, Entrepreneurs and Investors Conference & Expo taking place on Saturday, February 21 and Sunday, February 22 at New Birth Church in Lithonia, Georgia. The projected live-in-person attendance is 10,000. The global live streaming attendance could exceed 20,000.
