hub harmony

All our work touches four key areas: projects, products, strategic partnerships, and thought leadership. Like different instruments, each one adds something to the performance of the symphony. The balance changes from movement to movement over time.

Projects

At hub360, projects are an important component of the incubator. Inside our petri dish of R&D, all our projects are in conversation with each other. Every project implemented to solve a problem inevitably raises a new problem to the surface— we view this as an important part of the process.

How it works:

  1. look at a problem + its data

  2. identify the team with the right expertise and qualitative experience

  3. identify a high-potential solution, + pilot the project

  4. identify problems to feed back into the hub for innovation

We our proposals because we choose projects carefully that have long term potential for innovation, incubation, product and partnership development.

 
 

Products

So, we generate ideas in projects. People say, hey! We should sell this.

  1. We send the ideas to the incubator for a quick market test following our lean start-up process to see if it’s viable, and figure out what it would take to go to market.

  2. If we pursue it, we follow a process to develop it further to pilot it.

  3. If it’s not viable, we throw it away (not nice phrasing) – meaning we don’t clutter up our minds with it anymore.

Strategic Partnerships

Our strategic partnerships take our vision and help it to go BIG. What do we mean by big? Tapping in to big infrastructure, big data, big impact, big reach. All to create meaningful work opportunities for women and youth globally. Our partnerships are joint ventures with shared risks, and shared rewards.

 
 

Thought Leadership

  1. We innovate within thought leadership and what it can be

  2. We create a platform where the people we serve can be thought leaders, globally.

  3. We actively seek out high profile press to further the cause and reach our goal of jobs creation

  4. We publish on internal and external platforms to share what we’ve done, what we are doing, and impact.

  5. We share our ever expanding evidence base as we collect data and test our hypotheses – what’s working? What is resulting in meaningful jobs? What do we do next?
