Hub Culture is a global collaboration network founded in 2002. Over 25,000 global urban influentials are connected, giving the network far reaching ability to build worth through leveraged collaboration.
Hub Culture operates around three functions - Pavilions (places to collaborate), Knowledge Brokerage (consulting and deal services) and Ven, a global digital currency. Ven is the first private currency to move into the financial markets and is priced from a mix of commodities and currencies. Ven delivers singular global pricing, a great currency FX hedge and green DNA to help support more sustainable economies. Pricing is available from Thomson Reuters worldwide (.VEN).
Hub Culture uses collaboration technology to drive high value deals. Tools include Groups with file sharing and wikis, and Knowledge Brokerage for rapid dealmaking. These tools support the Hub Culture Pavilions, real, low-carbon places designed for meetings and connections. Hub Culture Pavilions include amazing spaces, like beach clubs, clubhouses, and the NooRepublic, an island project.
Membership to the HubCulture.com Network is free by invitation. Membership upgrades are available to use the Pavilions and some areas of the website, and these costs can be 'earned' by members who contribute knowledge to others. Hub is a positive, value creating feedback loop. Content is highly curated and often member generated.
Pavilion projects in key global cities enhance the mission of Hub Culture to help drive deals and social consciousness. The Pavilions represent a breakthrough in sustainability, work efficiency, and community development by providing spaces that combine the virtual and physical in a stunning format.
The Pavilions create new types of interaction opportunities. They vary in size and operations, but all run on a sophisticated virtual platform that includes a booking system, reservations, online store, proximity management, social media integration and more.
Pavilions offer a new way to work for the networked individual and forward thinking companies. They are a carbon winner - shortening commutes while aggregating resources. They build worth by cross-fertilizing ideas, companies and capital. They are a new type of innovation laboratory.
