Hub SoMa Weekly Roll Up: Labor day makes for a ‘labor’ day

Hello Hubbers,

Sorry about the delay in getting this out, the long weekend builds up an enormous task list. Not really sure if I interpreted “Labor Day” correctly.

What I should have been doing is reminding you of the Brad Paul discussion about the history of SoMa, the Tenderloin, and the reasons why Hub SoMa couldn’t be located in a more perfect location. This talk will be followed up with a tour of the area and all are invited to join. But before that, there will be the following discussion and tours about SoMa, Arts, and The SF Chronicle itself:

  • September 16th – Noon – 1:00 PM – Art and the Streets – A Brown Bag Lunch at the Hub with Intersection for the Arts.
  • September 23rd – Noon – 1:00 PM – Architecture and Awe – A Brown Bag Lunch at the Hub with John King – Architecture writer/critic – San Francisco Chronicle/SFGATE
  • September 29th – Noon – 1:00 PM –– The Chronicle Building – Under and over the Street – A walking tour.

On Thursday, September 9: Augusta Hopkins will be holding office hours. Augusta advises social entrepreneurs – just like you – to efficiently and effectively move your brilliant business ideas forward. She will work side by side with you to develop actionable strategies you can commit to.  Then, through weekly meetings, she provides accountability and guidance tailored to your specific needs so that we can make it happen. She can help you:

•        find clarity around audience, purpose, and market
•        craft authentic, appropriate messaging
•        establish clear short-term, long-term and mid-range business goals
•        move forward to realize your objective

To sign up for these office hours, please find a time in the shared calendar here:

I would like to highlight one evening event this week: It’s a DJ event on September 9 in the space put on by Intersection for the Arts. Intersection for the Arts presents a unique event as part of our current exhibition at Intersection 5M, Recycled Re-Mix: Eighty-sixed Thirty-threes, 2007-2008. To RSVP:

This week at Hub Berkeley, there will be a follow up soccer match. After a very successful first soccer game a couple weeks ago at Hub Berkeley with more than 18 members and staff (which included a fasting Alex Michel, a talented Jon Axtell, an unstoppable Maura Parente, and Eugene as the official photographer) we will do it again next Wednesday September 8th at 6pm. Please meet at Hub Berkeley if you want to play!

Finally, a little hubris. Hub Kings Cross (and Hubs in general) were featured in a CNN World piece. In it, you’ll see my old stomping ground, a few of my old friends/members and the beautiful Hub Kings Cross space. You can find it here:

Of everyone who reads this, I like you the best.
