Our Origin & Mission
OmniWorks provides business resources and training to BIPOC and women entrepreneurs, with the goal of creating a more inclusive economy. Since inception in 2017, OmniWorks has assisted more than 1,000 entrepreneurs by working with community partners including East LA College, Los Angeles Urban League, Long Beach Economic Partnership, USC, LISC and CAMEO.
To date, our programs have been underwritten by grant funding, and therefore free for participants. In response to program alumni’s interest in on-going support, we’re excited to launch OmniWorks COLAB. In COLAB, participants will invest in themselves through a paid membership. Their membership investment will make our program offering self-sustaining, and therefore available beyond the previously short-term, grant-funded programs. It will also allow us to extend our resources to support more early stage BIPOC and women entrepreneurs.
In keeping with our mission of creating a more inclusive economy, a portion of COLAB membership fees will be funneled into a scholarship fund for participants unable to afford the membership fees.
We believe that this new membership model will allow us to sustainably serve entrepreneurs from under- resourced communities, as well as support more small business owners with the resources vital to their success.
We hope you join us in investing in yourself and other entrepreneurs and become a member of OmniWorks COLAB.
