HUB party / HUB (potential) membermeeting 24 oktober 2007

my dear friends @ the HUB asked me to post invite you for the following:

It is time for another party at The Hub Rotterdam!

A few months ago we've asked social innovators, sustainable entrepreneurs or out-of-the box inventors to help us co-create The Hub Rotterdam. This evolved into several teams who have been working on the design, finding new members, the development of an organisational structure and more. In Amsterdam we've hosted many meetings where a growing number of people joined the community. We are now looking for a good space.

One of the teams has come up with a creative and innovative way to find the needed investment to realise the two Hubs in The Netherlands. On November 24 a spectacular auction of sustainable products and innovative services created by (future) Hub members will be organised at the Hilton Hotel in Rotterdam. We're going to make this a grand event and are working together with PR-specialists 2Twintig, auction house Christie's, the imagineers of NEST and others who are supporting the Hub.

We see this auction as a great chance to showcase all the beautiful sustainable and social innovative projects from our network to a relevant audience and the media. The emergence of this new category of entrepreneurs and innovators will become visible instantly. Of course we also hope to earn the needed investment capital so that we can offer workspaces and a network to nearly 400 social innovators to realise their imaginative initiatives.

Exactly one month before the event, on Wednesday October 24, our member-meeting will focus on the preparations needed for this auction and thus the launch of The Hub in The Netherlands. If you want to feature your product or service in the auction catalog, or if you'd like to contribute in any other way to make our work in The Netherlands visible through this big event, join us between 6 and 9 pm at the Heemraadssingel 219 in Rotterdam. Snacks and drinks will be provided. From 6 to 7 there is time for drinks and chats, from 7 to 9 we will be making plans for the auction.

Feel free to forward this invitation to others in your network who's product or service should feature in a catalog of sustainable and social innovative products and services. They would have to be (future) members of The Hub Amsterdam or Rotterdam, membership starts from one day a month.

Please let us know by short reply to thehublaunch@gmail.com if you are joining us. If you can't make it for the meeting but are interested in showcasing your work in the catalog you can also contact us.

We hope to welcome you on the 24th!

The Hub team and NEST
