We seek to catalyze systemic, scalable solutions to key issues facing our home regions of Colorado and Chile to support the development of resilient, thriving communities.
“Through ZOMALAB, we focus on issues that reflect our passions and our personal experiences in the places we call home. What moves us to give back is simply gratitude – for our communities and the opportunities we have had in our own lives.”
– Lucy Ana & Ben Walton, Co-founders
ZOMALAB, in partnership with the Colorado Governor’s Office, Colorado Succeeds, Colorado Thrives, SemperVirens, Skillful a Markle initiative, and Strada Education Network launched SyncUp Colorado, a $5 million prize pool calling for breakthrough education-to-employment partnerships to support Colorado's young people.
Aligned with our mission to support resilient and thriving communities, ZOMALAB is a founding partner in Enduring Earth, a nonprofit collaboration with The Pew Charitable Trusts, The Nature Conservancy, and World Wildlife Fund, committed to accelerating nature conservation and rural economic development worldwide through the Project Finance for Permanence (PFP) approach.
