Center of Hope Inc.
Bishop Ronald Dewberry

The Center of Hope International, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501©3 organization that focuses on economic inclusion, entrepreneur development and financial literacy for minority enterprises. The organization was established to assist the most needy and vulnerable members of our community by promoting solutions for empowerment, sustainability, and self-sufficiency. Topics highlight successful minority entrepreneurs who address various economic issues in the marketplace. Some of the luminaries brought to Syracuse include John Hope Bryant, Sonia Booker, and Angel Rich, who the New York Times Magazine in 2018 predicted would be the next Steve Jobs. COHI also hosts a series of workshops designed for women and minority enterprises, as well as an annual pitch competition.
