Ecosystem Empowerment Fund

The Empowerment Fund by HUUB was launched to supporting BIPOC change makers in community and economic development. Join us in creating a world where every ecosystem builder's efforts are valued and uplifted.

Apply for Empowerment

Ready to make a difference? Apply for the Ecosystem Builder Empowerment Fund and pave the way for positive change!

This fund was created to offset costs to participate in crucial programs, trainings and conferences or used to invest non-dillutive capital in economic development initiatives that are changing our communities across the U.S.

Building a thriving community ecosystem is crucial, yet we know it's no walk in the park. Many people do this work unpaid and dedicate their time and efforts outside of their regular jobs. Our founders have experienced the same struggle and walked that path. Recognizing the challenge and the value of this work especially in communities of color, we're on a mission to ease the financial burden that comes with supporting our entrepreneurial communities.

In order to qualify you must be an ecosystem builder who identifies as BIPOC or a woman. Current scholarship amount is capped at $500.
