The Hub Comes to San Francisco

Good news for 3p partner, The Hub: the San Francisco branch is almost ready for occupancy. The coworking space that targets social entrepreneurs, freelancers, and other independent professionals who want their work to have a positive impact, is scheduled to open this May in the SOMA neighborhood.

Coworking has been all the rage in the last few years, since it provides those who work from home the best of both worlds: the freedom to set your own schedule and choose your own projects and a community for professional collaboration and a sense of shared mission.

However, the Hub’s social mission sets it apart from the rest with its radical collaboration habitat, which turns each individual freelancer into a member of a network of like-minded individuals dedicated specifically to social enterprise. The Hub is truly a hub, a source for the best networks, events, and initiatives in social entrepreneurship like Investors’ CircleSocial Capital Markets (SOCAP)Rubicon NationalMercy CorpsExponent Partners, and Adaptive Edge. The Hub is the perfect example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. Simply by providing a space for great things to happen, they do.

As for us, we’re finalizing a plan to have office hours for 3p contributors to help them get their stories out, and we’ll be featuring the best of the Hub on 3p in the months to come. Stay tuned! As for now, Hub members may just see 3p staff typing away at one of the desks in the Berkeley space.

The Hub SOMA celebrates its very first event this Thursday with an Ethical Fashion night.
