OZworks Group is a private online network where OZ-aligned individuals connect with resources specific to their Opportunity Zone strategies. Our purpose is to build sustainable and scalable communities that align with Opportunity Zones.
At OZworks Group, we provide cultivated access to Opportunity Zone (OZ) resources and expertise through collaborative communities (both online and in Qualified Opportunity Zones) — so that OZ capital can catalyze impact in the communities that need it most.
