The HUB is about the power ofinnovation through collaboration. We believe there is no shortage of good ideas to solve the issues of our time. But there is an acute lack of collaboration and support structures to help make them happen. The HUB was founded to address this need. We set out to create spaces that combine the best of a trusted community, innovation lab, business incubator and the comforts of home. Spaces with all the tools and trimmings needed to grow and develop innovative ventures for the world. But above all, spaces for meaningful encounters, exchange and inspiration, full of diverse people doing amazing things. The idea has been spreading like wildfire and resulted in the emergence of a global movement. To date, there are 25+ open HUBs and many more in the making, from London to San Francisco, Johannesburg, Melbourne and Sao Paulo.

One more thing… “...Il pericolo maggiore che oggi corre il nostro paese non risiede tanto nel debito pubblico, nella contrazione del prodotto interno lordo, nell’insicurezza delle periferie urbane o nella mancata integrazione degli immigrati. Risiede piuttosto nella diffusa sensazione di crisi che ci snerva e ci disorienta, impedendoci diprogettare il nostro futuro e quando una intera nazione smette di immaginare il proprio domani, qualche altro lo fa contro di lei “
