Camelback Ventures Receives Largest Donation Ever

Camelback Ventures is a New Orleans-based nonprofit accelerator that identifies, develops, and promotes early-stage underrepresented entrepreneurs. 

The nonprofit was one of 116 organizations that received donations from MacKenzie Scott, ex-wife of Jeff Bezos, totaling $1.67 billion. The donations were given to organizations that are ‘Ruthless for Good’ as part of Scott’s The Giving Pledge.

The goal of Camelback Ventures is to increase individual and community education, and generational wealth.

I am proud to see our small but mighty team’s efforts recognized in this way by MacKenzie Scott’s generous contribution to our overall mission,” shared Camelback Ventures founder and CEO Aaron Walker. “This significant investment from Ms. Scott will allow us to deepen and grow our impact to support companies led by BIPOC and women founders.”
