The Hub sells time with flexible memberships that operate like a cell phone plan. Pay for what you need. Use the Hub as your office, to host a meeting or work on a project. It is a place to scale up, change gears, take risks, make mistakes, and bump into people.
Our core product is flexible membership in a shared space you can call your own. Based on a model from London, UK – The hub is a place for creative collisions. We have a unique offering that adds up to more than the sum of its parts.
Space: A space that is different every time you walk in. Individuals and start-ups need creative and inspiring places to work. The Hub offers a flexible and practical space where the things you need everyday are right at your fingertips, be that a coffee mug, a boardroom, or a printer. It’s not your typical office, there are no static spaces, and the number of people working around you changes daily.
People: Facebook in the real world. Small operations with big ambitions never have all the talent they need in house. It is the unexpected conversations that lead us to new knowledge, new partnerships, and allow us to expand or change direction. With a light touch, a skilled team of hosts will attract a diverse membership and make important connections between people. Like facebook, the Hub is a social network, unlike facebook you bump into your friends in person at the Hub and you can hire each other to build your website, design your logo or a draft a contract.
Technology: the things you need everyday. At the Hub you get reliable access to information technology and equipment (print, copy, fax, wireless, digital storage). Economy of scale enables us to have the best, fastest, and greenest technologies available at a great price. Through a software platform, members will be virtually connected to Hub members in Halifax and across the world, with the ability to collaborate and network virtually. This will open up opportunities both locally and abroad.
Relationships: they are everything The Hub is a place where you meet new people and get to know who they are and what they do. It is a place to build the networks of relationships and trust needed to make your ideas happen and to open doors.
