When you were a Camelback Fellow, you were building your venture. And right alongside you, we were building Camelback. Together, we've created a community that inspires me every day. The Camelback Team and I talk about y'all every day -- we are so proud to know you, and to support The Work with you.
With Ecosystem, we want to take this community to the next level. The goal of Ecosystem is to create a new space for collaborative, diverse impact investing, bringing in supporters and action agents from throughout the community. The inaugural convening will be held September 28 - 29 in the Bay Area.
I know you have a lot on your plate already. I also know that having you in the room would be critical to the success of movement that we are building through Ecosystem.
So, down to the details:
We have worked hard to provide discount codes for you to attend. Please use the discount code ALUMNI for 25%-off of an all-inclusive pass to Ecosystem.
Furthermore, we are welcoming a select number of Fellows (5-8) to sign up as Fellow Ambassadors -- essentially, you will be volunteers helping our small team make the actual event happen. Fellow Ambassadors may help with things like meet & greeting, helping folks get to the right session, etc. Fellow Ambassadors will still be able to participate fully in the programming. Fellow Ambassadors will receive an additional 25% off -- i.e., 50% off the pass. If you are interested in being a Fellow Ambassador, please email me at email@example.com.
I also invite you to consider jointly attending our first Family Reunion (we're supporting travel and accommodations), which will be at the same location in the days before Ecosystem.
Hope to see you there.

BE RUTHLESS FOR GOOD
As we know, genius is equally distributed, but access is not. Ecosystem seeks to ensure that untapped communities — especially communities of color — do not just consume the future, but that we invest in our untapped entrepreneurs who are creating it. To create this vision, Ecosystem is a project powered by Camelback Ventures to build the community of people that can bring together their time, talent and treasure to invest in each other.
The theme of the Ecosystem is built around Camelback's mantra and manifesto: the idea of using the intense ruthlessness we see throughout the world, often for destructive personal gain, and utilize that same fearlessness and unapologetic passion to advance a cause bigger than ourselves.
