Community Connection

Robert Johnson is making it his mission to support the development of entrepreneurs of color.

He recently started a social impact business incubator called The Collective. Located in the Bronzeville neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago, his organization helps minority entrepreneurs grow, scale, and access resources.

Robert sees 5G as a huge opportunity to help bridge the gap among underserved communities. To ensure that happens, he says: “There’s a need to engage the community, bring the community together, and provide opportunities for those who have been left out, disenfranchised, and underinvested in.”
