Desiree & Vanessa -
One of the things that I have learned over time is to always honor those who were there with you in the beginning. Two years ago, Camelback had just finished its first investment cohort. At that time, we already were beginning to see that just investing in entrepreneurs was not enough. That we need to build a community ready to invest in entrepreneurs of color. The next step was to build a powerful community of people that are networked together that can supported our most promising untapped entrepreneurs who are too often people of color and women. That is what we seek to achieve at Ecosystem, an inaugural convening to be held September 28 - 29 in the Bay Area.
You both were the first to believe in that idea and now it is coming to fruition. We could not have gotten subsequent partners on board with your initial stamp of approval.
Thank you for your all of your support of Camelback and Ecosystem. Please use the discount code SPONSOR for a complimentary, all-inclusive pass to Ecosystem.

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.
