What is LA HUB? What is “any city” HUB? We recently attended the LA launch – having been invited by our friends at ROOZT.com – to find out. We are always excited by heading down to the warehouse/arts district of downtown Los Angeles, which is a mecca for creative minds to unite. The night started around 8pm and the 3rd floor quickly filled up with a wide mix of people from business suits to dreadlocks to hipsters to burners, etc. No doubt we were excited to mingle with the growing community of innovators and leaders here in Southern California. While the night was humid, we enjoyed some cocktails, watched a dance crew shake it out, bounced to the beats of the DJ and found some time to chat.
Another world is happening
Hub LA is about the power of people taking action for a better world. We are a new kind of membership club dedicated to the individuals and teams building the local, sustainable economy in Los Angeles and beyond. Anchored by a physical place, the Hub offers members access to 4,000 square feet of creative industrial space in the heart of the Arts District. We combine the best of a cafe, innovation lab, business accelerator, serviced office, and community center to create a place for meaningful encounters, productive work sessions, exchange and inspiration all with the ambition to spur social innovation.
Individuals and teams join Hub LA because of the inspiring environment; a curated community of diverse individuals and enterprises focused on creating positive change; and our focus on collaboration, programming and member engagement.
