About the project Edit

The Hub is a social enterprise with the ambition to inspire and support imaginative and enterprising initiatives for a better world. The Hub is a global community of people from every profession, background and culture working at 'new frontiers' to tackle the world's most pressing social, cultural and environmental challenges. The idea for the Hub came from the founders’ concern that there is no absence of good ideas in the world but that the problem is a crisis of access, scale, resources and impact. It felt vital to them to create places around the world for accessing space, resources, connections, knowledge, experience and investment. They are thus places to work, meet, innovate, learn and relax. They are designed for people who crave the inspiration, resources, knowledge, connections and investment to start and grow new ideas.

The objective of the Hub is to create places that borrow from the best of a member's club, an innovation agency, a serviced office and a think-tank to create a very different kind of innovation environment. Places with all the tools and trimmings needed to grow and develop new ventures. Places to access experience, knowledge, finance and markets. And above all, places for experience and encounter, full of diverse people doing amazing things.
