The life of a Hub member sure is tough sometimes. One day you’re enjoying delicious organic salad potlucks, the next receiving free legal services. Last Thursday was particularly challenging when Hub member Elizabeth Ferguson opened up her ‘office’ doors to provide free coaching services to Hub members.
In all sincerity, as a lucky recipient of this service, I just want to pass on a very warm THANK YOU to Elizabeth on behalf of all our members. Elizabeth allowed many of us to take a step back from our busy schedules, reflect, set goals, improve, and refocus on our purpose as social innovators and entrepreneurs. She provided invaluable career insights and guidance in the middle of this hectic holiday season.
Next up for Hub’s day time member perks? Wednesday the 9th’s sexy salad (our now infamous lunch-time potluck) will feature a discussion about education and food. Thursday the 10th you can huddle up with expert Hanley Brite to discuss entrepeneurship and sole-proprietership from 12-1. Check out our google calendar for details, or e-mail the hosts firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tony Wang and Lucy Bernholz from Blueprint Research & Design Inc. are launching a new Conversation online called, “When Capital When?” Below is short excerpt from their first post that describes the focus of the Conversation.
Instead of waiting years for a book to be written or months for a report to be published, what if researchers could publish up-to-the-minute findings of their latest research or thinking? Research (and thinking) could be done in real-time across organizations, involving not only the research team but members of the community, and be indexable and mashable by the latest in search and social media technology.
They would appreciate Hub Bay Area member’s participation in examining “the critical question of when to apply different types of capital in what kind of situations.” Please check out the link and stay tuned for following posts on the subject.
