We are a team of always on-the-go Black millennial professionals from diverse backgrounds that came together to influence and positively impact the world. As a Benefits Corporation1, the Agbara Life team found immediately that we share a love for our culture and our community. Our mission to help bridge the wealth gap of the underrepresented and underprivileged by engaging and energizing of youth in the field of S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) as an alternative option to sports and entertainment. We’ll do this by partnering with innovative S.T.E.M. programs that can connect with the kids in disadvantaged neighborhoods to give them confidence that this is a space they can move into.
A team built on a common love for fashion, tech, and culture
This isn't your average startup.
Agbara Life is dedicated to making a difference.
Agbara Life crafts wearable technology products that often reflect the complexities we see in today’s society. As young professionals, we’re constantly monitoring our phone battery to make sure we are always connected or at least able to call that Lyft at the end of the night. We expect to be right at the intersection of Fashion, Technology, and Social Impact.
We’ve thought over and designed every inch of the backpacks to maximize the utility and functionality of the product. The backpacks come with a TSA checkpoint friendly laptop compartment that doesn’t require you to remove it when going through airport security screening. It also comes with RFID blocking protection pockets; multiple internal access points to a battery charger you possess for varying electronics; and best of all, an option to route your charger to the outside world so that you can charge while the device is in your hand. And although the bags are big enough to carry a small umbrella, and maybe a pair of rainboots; we’ve added a stored rain cover specifically designed to cover your backpack and keep your electronics safe from the elements; one less thing you have to worry about going about your day with tech gear in your possession.
