A home for purpose-driven people
Our members are lovingly dubbed Hubbers. HUB Cowork members use The HUB Singapore as a base for work, play and inspiration, so come on by and meet them in person. HUB Connect members have their own offices, but pop in to The HUB Singapore when they can to throw or attend events. We're all tuned in to one another-- as well as the global network of over 6000 Hubbers-- through The HUB's online collaboration and connections platform, HUBnet. Plus, our Hosts are always open to curating connections for you!
Have a taste of The HUB Singapore's community. From 3 members on the first day we opened in May 2012... Today, we are a proud home for 400 Connect and Cowork Hubbers. Our community is still growing week by week, and we're working on expanding the physical space as well.

"You know how most consultants just tell you what to do and then leave you high and dry on the execution? Turns out coming up with an idea is the easy part, but implementing on that very vision is a where things get difficult.
This is where we come in. We actually join your team to get stuff done.
From day one we're out the building, validating your business idea, streamlining your operations, crunching numbers and writing content for your product.
Before you know it, you've accelerated through your most critical stage of growth and you have a kick-ass business to show for it.
If getting stuff done gets you fired up, give us a shout at hello@the-talent-society.
com. We're excited to meet you over a coffee at The Hub!"
