2017 Winner of Co-Lab Factory Scholarship

Brooklyn, NY – December 2016 | Good Management & Investments (GOOD) is proud to be the 2017 winner of the CoLab Factory scholarship. CoLab Factory, started by Shane Barbanel, has had an incredible impact on the Brooklyn community and the world-at-large.

In June 2016, CoLab Factory hosted 40 TrepCamp students with assistance from CoLab-Factory members, including Propel, Humblee, Rescuing Leftover Cuisine, Coop, and New York Natives. TrepCamp is the main training program for entrepreneurs within the initiatives of the Mexico-United States Entrepreneurship and Innovation Council (MUSEIC).

CoLab Factory continues this tradition by creating a new scholarship for women to offer free co-working space.  CoLab Factory has also paired the winners with Lenore Champagne Beirne, an investor at 645 Ventures and an Entrepreneurship coach at Bright Coaching.  “I am honored to be the winner of the #BuildYourDream Scholarship,” says GOOD founder Ebonique Ellis, “and to be among people who recognize the importance of entrepreneurship.”

Other Colab Factory peer is the social impact startup Propel, who secured $1.15 million in seed funding. The group of investors who funded Propel is primarily led by Chmod Ventures and included other key investors, such as WinWin, an investor group formed by Coinstar founder Jens Molbak.

Founders Kristoffer Adams and Ebonique Ellis create new business consulting firm


Nashville, Tennessee – October 9, 2016

Good Management and Investments has announced their opening to bring a new business consulting firm to service small and mid-size businesses in under-appreciated urban areas. Urban revitalization is bringing new lifeblood to America’s inner cities, while investors often miss opportunities to engage and preserve the diversity that first fueled the appeal of these areas. Good Management and Investments was conceived by Kristoffer Adams and Ebonique Ellis to help spur economic growth in areas that are either ignored by larger business consulting firms, or pushed toward gentrification that fails to respect the heart of the community. The partners bring a combined fifteen years experience in challenging the political status quo, experience that will serve the urban community in joining the entrepreneurial startup culture that is sweeping American cities.

Good Management and Investments brings to bear a whole-community philosophy that relies on more than business ventures to spur prosperity. Nonprofit organizations serve a key role in building up our communities; qualified nonprofit organizations will benefit from deeply discounted consulting rates. “We’ve realized that the best thing for business owners is to learn how to invest in their own community,” says GMI partner Ebonique Ellis, “Business owners need to be continually engaged in the needs of their community, and there is no better way than by charity and political activism.”

Today’s clientele demand good corporate citizenship from even the smallest of businesses, and business/charity partnerships are becoming commonplace. GMI will play a key role in forming these partnerships to benefit business owners, community organizations, and clientele. Good Management and Investments will prioritize both business growth and community revitalization.
