Camelback Employs NOLA Ingenuity in Its Mission (and Name)


New Orleans is said to be the origin of some of the first camelback-style homes following the Civil War. Families of the free black population resourcefully added a second story to the rear of these shotgun-style houses to create a structure reminiscent of a camel’s back.

Camelback Ventures is named for this innovation; we believe we could continue the tradition of using creativity and ingenuity to not only improve our communities, but also lift up our underrepresented peers. Camelback supports people of color and women leading education and social impact ventures — apply to our fellowship and learn more!
