Hub Ventures

Hub Ventures helps high caliber entrepreneurs build their world-changing startups better and faster.  We operate 12-week cohort cycles at Hub Bay Area, during which participating companies receive up to $20,000 in seed funding and engage in best-in-class mentorship, purpose-drive community, and content tailored to impact startups.  We also connect companies with our extensive network of investors during the program and at Investor Day, an opportunity to pitch to hundreds of investors.

Hub Ventures is a highly selective program that funds and supports strong startup teams that have potential for scale, profitability, and significant measurable impact on the world. We generally work with ?technology for good? companies including web-based, software, and mobile startups that are developing scalable solutions to domestic and global challenges ranging from poverty to climate change. We also consider non-tech businesses so long as they are focused on impact and can scale. We don?t typically work with capital intensive businesses, biotechnology companies, consultancies, service oriented businesses, or non-profits.

Hub Ventures is open to co-founders, and, if accepted, we strongly recommend that all founders be present in the Bay Area during the entire program cycle. There are no fees for participating in Hub Ventures, however, we ask that our entrepreneurs become members of Hub Bay Area for the duration of the 12-week program. A substantial discount on membership is provided.

Hub Ventures is for startups at all stages ? ranging from committed teams with an idea to those with a developed product in the market, revenue, and funding ? that are ready to go to the next level. We look for teams with at least two co-founders, and we tend not to accept startups with a single founder because we know how hard it is to launch a business. If you fit all of the above, we encourage you to apply now!
