The Hub is a space for social innovators to work, meet, connect, and inspire. Members come to The Hub to collaborate, access market opportunities and capital, build community, and scale ideas. It is a place-based and online community of entrepreneurs, freelance professionals, artists, funders, students, mentors, community leaders… amazing people, doing incredible things. We borrowed from the best of a member's club, business incubator, idea lab, and the comforts of home to create a different kind of space. A habitat for innovators.
During the day, The Hub is a dynamic, collision-rich workspace designed by its Members and the wisdom gleaned from Hub communities throughout the world. Social innovators in the Bay Area are leaving their sterile offices, noisy cafes, and isolated living rooms to work alongside diverse peers in a professionally hosted environment. They choose The Hub because it's where they find the access, tools, community, and inspiration they need to transform their ideas into action.
At night, The Hub transforms into an event platform for member driven collaborations, lectures, screenings, innovation labs, and some of the most compelling and imaginative minds from around the world.
In 2009, HUB Berkeley was our very first space, located in the David Brower Center, then followed by a San Francisco Hub inside the San Francisco Chronicle Building in 2010. Our goal is to build a network of Hubs throughout the Bay Area to connect innovators from Silicon Valley to the City to the East Bay. We invite you to become a member of The Hub; where you will find your next project, partner, funder, or muse.
