Arts Business Collaborative, Inc.

Improving quality of life for people of color in the arts and STEM.


ABC is a 501(c)3 technical assistance and research organization committed to improving the quality of life of people of color through the arts and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math). Our programs focus on the underlying factors that affect quality of life for people of color: access to capital, access to networks, access to training, and entrepreneurship.

In the first 5 years of operation, ABC has reached 134 nonprofits, individual artists, and social enterprises and has raised over $19 million for nonprofit STEAM organizations. BeatGlobal, a 2016 client, doubled their revenues from $194k to $382k after we helped them evaluate and pitch their program. Another client, Ron Brown Scholar Program, secured a $2M gift to support the program we designed and that has served nearly 20,000 first-generation college students across the country.
