About Collab Studio 

Black founders & entrepreneurs have what it takes to create & experience immense success, but don’t always have the support and resources they need to take their business to the next level. Collab Studio‘s goal is to remain founder-focused and equip those we serve with tools and information they often times don’t have access to when they need it.
