Giving Back

Nova was founded by 4 women who wanted to make an impact in their work and in their community. Our “40 and 4” commitment represents our 4 founders — each Nova founder will dedicate 40 hours annually with local organizations and collectively donate 4% of net profits to organizations that share our goals of fostering representation and inclusion in business.

Meet our 40 & 4 partner, Gray Matter Experience. Promoting Black/Brown youth entrepreneurship in Chicago.
