Today (March 3rd) was the first day of the Hub Rally. Eight highly motivated social entrepreneurs met for the first time and started their two months intensive journey. This was made possible by tour generous contribution through globalgiving, and additioan funding by IBM, Dualis - Israel Social Venture Fund and Tel Aviv Municipality.
The different projects cover a wide range of social causes, including dialog between cultures, strengthening the self-identity of the Ethiopian immigrants community, urban revival in less-privileged parts of Tel Aviv, promoting the ideas of pernaculture to the wider population, social cause based design and employment of people with disabilities.
In the 8 weeks to come, the participants in the Rally will go through an internsive process of buidling their business plan, evaluating the social impact of their projects and define how this impact will be measured, and plan the MVP (minimal viable product) that they will launch as a first proof af concept. The program puts a strong emphasis on peer support, buidling a coalition of partners, and investigating the internal strengths and weaknesses of the individual entrepreneurs.
The Hub Rally is carried out as a parnership of Hub Tel Aviv and Minga - the arena for social enterprises.
