"A rising tide doesn't raise people who don't have a boat. We have to build the boat for them. We have to give them the basic infrastructure to rise with the tide." Rahul Gandhi
SoTech Ventures employs a multi-pronged strategy designed to empower & equalize under-represented communities and markets.
We are actively involved in applying our operating model to the Infrastructure and Opportunity Zone arenas by pioneering "Activist Advisory" as a core strategy of all our projects.
This work materializes through an initiative we've named Our Voice / Nuestra Voz that facilitates the establishment of local community advisory boards who work collaboratively with local investment groups to maximize ROI and social impact on local projects.
Furthermore, we are establishing the "gold standard" of what comprehensive community impact ought to look like in Opportunity Zone transactions. From community co-investment via crowd-funding to public-private partnerships, our work aspires to show Opportunity Zones Done Right.
Ultimately, our services are designed to bring assets into the community (with the blessing of community members), build value in those assets and then permanently root those assets in the community. Our strategies represent a new standard of social impact best practices throughout Opportunity Zone ecosystems nationwide.
