We aim to foster a culture of entrepreneurship, innovation and success among people in communities, creating economic growth and societal impact.
At the heart of how we do this are the Hub Members, the promising entrepreneurs who we support through our programmes, and our Hub Mentors, the business leaders who volunteer their expertise and time to help the Hub Members succeed.
