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.
Good Management and Investments was founded in July 2016 to fulfill the the market’s need for low-cost affordable business consulting packages for new entrepreneurs. Its mission is to value human capital and productivity. Their first business mailing address is the CoLab Factory space at 14 DeKalb Ave, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn, NY 11201 starting mid-January 2017.
