Just came back from a meeting on membership packages with Ivy & Vinod. Crazy to think how far we’ve come since last November when I first met Vinod at Bridgehead downtown. I can actually say that I’M AT THE HUB (not just doing Hub stuff somewhere else).
Jason just did the recap on the Pop Up Weekend on the Hub blog so won’t say too much more except – wow, after all of that hard work – now the real work begins! Haha.
And that’s the difference between planning the one-off events and building a company. One of the many reasons we’ve heard the Hub is much needed in this city is that there are way too many ‘one-off’ events – where they ‘pop up’ and then disappear for another few months. Our “pop-up” is leading us to our ‘launch’ in February.
Within the Founding Team we’ve been talking a lot about moving from Founding to Operating – and that’s one giant step. What’s my job moving forward? Well, happy to say that I’ll be managing a lot of the programming (along with the awesome Hub team and Hub volunteers). My job this week is to take that awesome post-it note wall “A Day/Week/Month/Year in the Hub” and turn it into something tangible. What events will we be hosting for members? For the public? What kind of events are our members wanting to host in the Hub? How does that work with hours etc.? My brain is buzzing with ideas – will be focusing on that this week. Stay tuned:)
