Because they are in the groups that are becoming the majority of the population in the US within the next 20 years, we call these founders the New Majority.

Trep House is specifically designed to adapt the best accelerator, incubator and related programs to specifically meet the needs of these New Majority creators

How Does Trep House work?

Trep House functions as a social startup studio and comprehensive venture support network, using both online and in-person strategies to accelerate the growth of businesses based on their New Majority creators’ existing talents and assets. Online strategies allow early adopters in large and small communities to learn from peers, overcome their isolation and even find clients and services within the broader Trep House community.

As Trep House locations grow, they establish innovation-focused hubs and increase their ability to leverage local and non-local investment through real estate, crowdfunding and curated investor opportunities

The Trep House virtual hub includes the following
individual components:

Virtual innovation hub, offering courseware, group seminars, workshops and service provider network specifically designed to meet the needs of underrepresented creators.

A closed and vetted online community space for meeting and collaborating with members of the Trep House network.

A marketplace for exchanging services and products among Trep House‘s enterprise members.

Marketing and logistics support for crowdfunding and other nontraditional forms of investment-gathering and alternative forms of “capital” infusions

In-house capital raises & impact-focused venture fund

A Creative Capital Venture Studio for founders who are ready to collaborate and impact in the transformative ways that the New Majority needs.

Why us?

Trep House is designed for Millenial and Generation Z creators who come from underrepresented communities. As part of the largest and most diverse generations in US history, this population typically has a high level of skill with digital technology but also places the highest value on co-working and co-creation, as evidenced by the proliferation of co-working and other “third places.” Trep House’s target market includes technology and finance professionals, creative freelancers, forward-thinking and scale-motivated creatives and others who have ambition, motivation and vision, but lack

  • Personal network
  • Exposure to entrepreneurial thinking and entrepreneurial skills
  • The personal, professional and resource support systems to grow promising ideas to their potential

Research indicates that these legacies of structural exclusion cannot be overcome simply by money, training or willpower. Capitalizing on the opportunities that these founders have the unique potential to reach requires an intentional system of growth and support. Fostering the economic growth and innovation that these founders can uniquely create requires that we create network and support systems comparable to those that benefit starters from more privileged backgrounds.
