Fair Haven is a Diverse Community with a Rich History and a Beautiful Waterfront

Collab is a growing organization that equips entrepreneurs with the confidence, resources, and skills to build new ventures that contribute to economic vibrancy in our community. We envision a Greater New Haven where civically activated businesses help create community wealth, livelihoods for families, and structural change. We prioritize partnering with people of color — particularly black and brown entrepreneurs — in order to help combat the structural racism, economic and otherwise, that has created and maintained the racial and gender wealth inequalities in our communities.

Collab was founded in 2017. In addition to hosting regular public events and 1-on-1 Office Hours, our core program is the Collab Accelerator. This is a 12-week, cohort-based program supporting early-stage ventures. As a part of all of our programming, we provide childcare, transportation, and interpretation services to ensure all ventures can be successful while working with us. The 63 ventures that have graduated from our Accelerator have collectively raised over $795,000 in follow-on funding through investment, loans, and grants, generated over $876,000 in revenue, and added or continued to support 48 full time or part time jobs. 


We’re really fortunate and excited that we are growing our team at Collab. As we look to support more entrepreneurs, we have two open positions:

  • Venture Manager, Full-time: We’re seeking a dependable, culturally-responsive program manager with entrepreneurship experience to lead and coordinate Collab’s core programs that support a diverse, talented community of entrepreneurs. 

  • Community Fellows, Part-time/Contract: We’re seeking highly motivated and independent Community Fellows with excellent interpersonal skills to conduct outreach efforts, including 1-on-1 coaching for entrepreneurs, to expand Collab’s service reach in the city and region.
