Seed Capital Investing

We partner with entrepreneurs who seek technical and marketing support in overcoming the hurdles of bringing their ideas to fruition. In exchange for an equity position, the Hub Seed Fund aligns with these professionals to ultimately launch companies that introduce innovative products or services into the marketplace, all within six to twelve months, through the utilization of lean methodology.

What is Lean Startup?

The HuB Seed Fund distinguishes itself by expertly applying Lean Startup methodology. This technique of launching products takes a scientific, four-milestone approach to business creation and management. Lean Startup finds value in shortening product development cycles, measuring progress and consumer response, and ultimately perfecting the product or service in alignment with feedback.

Value to Entrepreneurs

The HuB Seed Fund offers unparalleled value to both accomplished and inexperienced entrepreneurs. It is common for business owners to initially struggle with identifying revenue or overbuilding.  Through the exploitation of the HuB’s resources, individuals undertaking a business venture are exceptionally positioned to develop strength in these and other areas, and eventually function independently.

We Launch Ideas

The HuB functions to create a solid avenue for individuals who have devised an inventive idea and seek to transform that idea from a vision into a reality. This can be a powerful concept for budding entrepreneurs who feel overwhelmed or bewildered by the process of bringing an idea to fruition. As pictured, frequent creative gatherings are one of many resourceful methods that the HuB offers.
