Hub San Francisco Weekly Roll Up: Summer Comes!

Hey Hubbers,

Last weekend I saw a great movie called Pelada. It was a documentary about a couple from the US traveling the world looking for pick-up games of soccer. And they found games: in the alleys, in the fields, in the desert, in the prisons. I couldn’t help thinking of the global aspect of the Hub. With 30 Hubs worldwide, everywhere you go, you find people starting businesses that build a better world. So, if your summer plans are taking you out of the country, check the website, or check in with a host to see if there are folks to meet where you are going. Chances are, the Hub will have a connection for you.

Here in SF, Hub Bay Area is running a summer program with Impact Corps. We will be providing an opportunity for the next generation of talent to pursue their interests within the impact sector.  Impact-U is a three month weekend membership that provides current graduate and undergraduate upperclassman students an environment to build their network, knowledge-base and/or start-up company. If you have other questions, please email u@impactcorps.com. Continue reading
