Phase Three: Scale & Growth

To the sky & beyond

We scale membership and acquisitions in have more social impact in our community &  generate significant returns for The Nubian Fund Investment Collective. 

Liquidation & Reinvestment

For sustained impact The Nubian Fund will eventually be in a position to sell our assets to re-liquidate and scale further. Liquidity allows use to service the debt required to scale and exponentially continue growth. We are embracing Employee  Stock Ownership plans to ensure the impact to our community remains and that the ownership of the businesses we launched remain in the hands of our community.  ESOP’s allows employees to purchase ownership in a business by small withholding from a paycheck. ESOP’s are now eligible for small business loans via the SBA. We are targeting 3-5 years from launch to liquidation event.
