Hub San Francisco Weekly Roll Up: SOCAP Europe Success!!

Hey Hubbers,

Just wanted to share the great news about the success of the SOCAP Europe inaugural event in Amsterdam. Over 650 individuals representing 50 countries and 6 continents exemplified the growing movements global relevance and scope. HRH Princess Máxima of the Netherlands, the UN appointed advocate for Inclusive Finance, set the tone with her opening keynote. The 3-day event continued with an Innovation Showcase, Open Space sessions and promising new connections driving the movement forward.

Maybe you’ve noticed a few changes around the space in the last couple weeks; the new steps which have replaced the bookcase in the front; alterations to the Host desk; a spiral staircase in the gallery, and soon, a new locker system and seating area added to the entrance. The Italian has been busy! Andrea Paoletti, design manager of Hub Milan and Hub Rovereto in Italy, is still looking for some enthusiastic Hubbers to share their thoughts on what this space needs. We just want to hear more of your great ideas!! Email photographs, ideas, or feedback to Or just find him in the space for a discussion. He’d love to meet you.
