Milky Way Tech Hub founder Nadiyah Johnson and Oby Nwabuzor, founder of real estate development firm Envision Growth, are moving forward with plans to fundraise for a new co-working space and community hub in Milwaukee’s Sherman Park neighborhood.

In 2020, the duo first announced plans to raise money to redevelop 3803 W. Fond du Lac Ave., a 5,100-square-foot building that currently houses Johnson’s software company Jet Constellations as well as her mother’s insurance company.

crowdfunding page for the project officially went live on Aug. 11. The campaign’s target goal is $500,000, but the first phase of fundraising is for $10,000. That initial $10,000 will be used to complete a co-working space for area creatives, entrepreneurs and tech workers. The building will also have an event and multi-purpose area and office spaces.
