Change is changing. Investors, policy makers, and communities alike want their dollars to make more visceral impact — biased towards solving community challenges like poverty, rather than just bandaging the symptoms. We’re working aggressively to pursue this nobul change as entrepreneurs, early-stage investors, and consultants.

Our team is made up of several restless change-makers and is led by founder, Joe DeLoss. Please contact us to discuss opportunities to partner. Be nobul.

Featured Projects


FrameWork emerged from Nobul’s Workforce Lab in the Spring of 2012. The developing business will provide highly-motivated, performance-driven employees to growing industries and employers. We’re actively piloting the FrameWork model with several employers and have an employment solution in development for employers seeking large pools of entry-level laborers. More to come.

Community Properties of Ohio

Community Properties of Ohio (CPO Management) manages over 1,800 units of affordable housing throughout Central Ohio and the greater state. Beyond quality and stable housing, CPO’s nonprofit foundation, Community Properties Impact, provides residents with an empowering environment and supportive services as they build successful lives. Nobul is currently supporting CPO as they create a powerful transitional employment program to prepare residents seeking permanent employment.

Freshbox Catering

Freshbox Catering is a market-leading food service company on a mission to transform the lives of its employees. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Lutheran Social Services of Central Ohio, Freshbox provides transformative employment to residents of Faith Mission homeless shelters. The Nobul team assembled after conceptualizing and launching the business for Lutheran Social Services in 2009. In May 2011, Lutheran Social Services began full operational control.
