Hub Ventures : Apps due Feb 13

Got this in an email this afternoon:

Building a social venture and in need of funding, resources, and an amazing community of peers and mentors?

Hub Ventures is a 12-week evening program providing funding and resources to a community of 16 entrepreneurs building solutions for a better world. Participants will refine their business models and investor pitches while growing their networks of peers, mentors, and potential investors. They will engage in weekly peer review sessions, mentor office hours, speaker events, and focused workshops on topics such as Design for Impact, Fundraising Methods, and Customer Development.

Upon completion of the program, 3-4 ventures will receive $75,000 in seed funding through a peer selection process. Participants will also pitch to top Bay Area Impact Investors at SOCAP Investor Day in June.

The sessions will take place at Hub SoMa (San Francisco) and Hub Berkeley.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, with the final day to submit of Sun Feb 13.
