After opening Hub LA one year ago, we are excited about the community of passionate Angelenos who have gathered to build and grow Hub LA—a place of possibility dedicated to activists, artists, entrepreneurs, freelancers, and impact professionals using their work to create a better world. Come, join the community, and turn your inspiration into action!



At Hub LA, thoughtfully and intentionally connecting members who can support and resource one another is core to our mission. We even have a whole position dedicated to just that! Because we are such a diverse community of talent and sector expertise, everyone has something to offer and share. You just never know who you will meet while grabbing your morning coffee.



When members connect and start to explore each other's interests and passions, along side their professional expertise, new opportunities emerge that are greater than the sum of the parts. This interaction, often called collaboration, is the spark that fuels social innovation and change (that and being surrounded by walls you can write on!).
