Congratulations to all of the selected participants of the West Coast Village Capital Program! Just to recap, the WCVC’s goal is to bring social entrepreneurs together and give them the resources they need to launch, grow and expand their business ideas. The bright folks who are selected, work in small groups to evaluate one another’s business models and potential for investments. Those businesses that are seen to have the most potential are given seed money to grow their business. The Hub is, in part, facilitating the networking and meeting space component of the program.

Stay tuned for more updates and interviews on this exciting program!
