Want to change the world? Check out Hub Singapore, the city’s newest co-working space
May 10, 2012 by Terence LEE
Singapore is fast becoming a hub for co-working spaces, judging by how they pop up like mushrooms in the city.
Now, there’s a new flavor in town, and it is aptly called Hub Singapore.
Located just a stone’s throw away from Orchard Road, Singapore’s prime shopping district, the Hub bills itself as a co-working space for world-changers, offering them access not just to one workspace but also a global network of 32 other Hubs.
The Hub targets people that enjoy working at the intersection of fields, are collaborative, and work for a purpose. They include anyone from web developers to social entrepreneurs to impact investors.
Facilities on-site include a café, hot desking environments, quiet areas for focused concentration, and places where members work the phones to get things done. The Hub also features meeting and workshop rooms, as well as an event space that can accommodate over 120 people.
The community has so far included a good mix of technology, social, and green entrepreneurs. The video below introduces them:
Members have the flexibility to define the space the way they like. It will curate events, workshops, and member-driven initiatives.
One of its most attractive features is the member’s passport that connects them with over 32 Hubs around the world and its 4,000 plus members.
They will be able to network with change makers in other countries online, and receive priority access to events, workshops, and more. Hub Singapore members can also access Hubs around the world, in places like San Francisco, Vienna, or Johannesburg.
This week, the company will be having a soft launch in conjunction with WalkaboutSG, an all-day open house for tech startups where participants can embark on trails to visit their offices. They are part of a suggested itinerary.
The co-working space has also announced partnerships with Unreasonable at Sea, a cutting edge tech startup accelerator program where teams work on a ship and sail around the world, as well as Up Singapore, an initiative to improve the urban environment through data and technology.
Check out the details and pricing on membership plans and event space booking.
