Craigslist Foundation Boot Camp

Hub Bay Area is excited to participate in Craigslist Foundation’s 7th annual Boot Camp on Saturday August 14 from 7:30am-5:30pm. This one-day, high-energy conference brings together and showcases effective community leaders. Through a series of inspiring panels, interactive workshops, collaborative programs and networking opportunities, Craigslist Foundation Boot Camp cultivates conversation and empowers people to affect a positive impact in their neighborhoods and communities.

Hub Bay Area will be presenting a session at Boot Camp. This panel session will focus on fostering collaboration among social entrepreneurs. Panelists will discuss strategies to inspire and build and encourage collaboration between social entrepreneurs, discussing how web tools, leadership programs and collision rich co-working spaces can encourage alliance and knowledge share, and further the principle that we do indeed work better together.
