In a year in which traditional systems and assumptions have been disrupted, new voices of innovation and determination are effervescing. Evangelists of community, new media, non-traditional capital markets, and entrepreneurship seek new answers to the problems of our age. Hub Bay Area feels privileged to be a part of this movement by offering an ecosystem, resources and a platform to these voices. It is for this reason, we are proud to announce two major developments in the Hub Bay Area community.
1) An intent to lease at the San Francisco Chronicle for the home of our future SF Hub
2) A partnership with First Light Capital to offer seed funding to start-up social entrepreneurs. Informational meeting on Monday December 7th
First Light Capital: First Light Capital has announced Hub Bay Area as the home of the new $500,000 West Coast Village Capital Fund. Inspired by the village bank model used in microfinance throughout the world, Village Capital is an innovative investment model built on the hypothesis that entrepreneurs, working intimately together and providing peer support to one another, will be able to efficiently and wisely allocate investment to one another’s companies.
