Kwanza Jones is a catalyst. She is the co-founder and CEO of the Kwanza Jones & José E. Feliciano Initiative, a high-impact philanthropic grant-making and impact investment organization. Founded in 2014, the Initiative invests in individuals, organizations, early stage/growth ventures, nonprofits and for-profit companies that are compatible with its goal to make a lasting impact across four key areas: Education, Entrepreneurship, Equity and Empowerment. (

Prior to founding the Jones+Feliciano, Jones taught cross cultural negotiations at New York University, was a mediator for the New York City Civil Court and started her career in media and production at Innovation Entertainment Group.

​Jones currently serves on the Board of Directors of several institutions, non-profits, Jones+Feliciano portfolio companies, and others. She also founded SUPERCHARGED by Kwanza Jones, a lifestyle & motivational media company that helps individuals and organizations continuously improve. (

With a multifaceted background spanning music, media, production, law, business and philanthropy, some say Jones is a Renaissance woman, others call her a Boss. For Kwanza, the title does not matter, the work does. She has been able to merge her three parallel pursuits of creating, investing and powering transformative change, all while shaking up the status quo of what a career should be.

Whether serving on corporate boards, teaching negotiation classes at major universities, performing, or speaking on entrepreneurship, empowerment, diversity and leadership, Kwanza Jones inspires and energizes audiences. Given her background as a nine-time and Top 10 Billboard charting dance music artist, it’s no surprise — her energy ignites confidence and action. It’s all part of Kwanza Jones’ passion and purpose, to be a catalyst for the betterment of humanity. (

Jones is a graduate of Princeton University, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Public and International Affairs, Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University, where she earned her Juris Doctor, and Pepperdine University School of Law where she earned her Master of Dispute Resolution.
