OUR BUSINESSES

One of the most important aspects of OAW’s vision is to sustain the businesses we launch to profitability.  Most small businesses fail early on because they don’t have the capital to sustain themselves. Thus, we are committed to generate and invest capital into these businesses until they can fly on their own.  In return, OAW businesses that succeed will re-invest a percentage of their net profits back into OAW for launching and sustaining more businesses.  We say, let a thousand businesses bloom.

 

WEST OAKLAND FARMS

West Oakland Farms, launched in 2015, is co-owned with OAW and fully operated by a small group of formerly incarcerated people. Crops on the farm are produced through organically sustainable growing methods, and are sold to local grocers and restaurants.
