Prior to joining OmniWorks™, Joni led the formation of JPMorgan’s Higher Education, Healthcare, Not-for-Profit and Government commercial banking practice in the Western states.
Prior to founding OmniWorks™ in 2016, Brent served as the Head of Content Development at AT&T, where he oversaw the creation of new content and investment analysis for TV, online and mobile platforms
In 2017, four founders from diverse backgrounds came together with a vision -- to improve the services provided to small business owners in underserved communities. The original vision was:
"OmniWorks’ purpose is to address the needs of underserved entrepreneurs in economically challenged communities through democratizing access to capital, markets, and financial and business education in support of startups and growth-stage companies, to create and sustain quality jobs, and to encourage wealth generation among women, people of color, veterans, and the LGBT community."
While we have gone through several iterations in response to participant feedback, changing economic realities, and a pandemic, the vision continues. The barriers and inequities that inspired our work persist, and if anything, have become more acute. We remain committed to changing how wealth is created and who benefits.
