Over the last fourteen years, the Opportunity Funding Corporation (OFC) has infused entrepreneurship into Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) curriculum. With the emergence of economies driven by technology and disruptive business models, OFC recognizes the next wave of leaders must possess an entrepreneurial mindset that can lead to new venture creation and increased career opportunities.
