Seattle Hub

The Seattle Hub is a vibrant community of entrepreneurs, civic leaders, business innovators, and nonprofit organizers. The common themes that unite us are a continual desire to improve the world, a willingness to instigate new things and take risk, and a commitment to helping our fellow Shapers achieve their goals. In the past, we have launched local projects addressing climate justice, voter registration, COVID-19 relief, and housing-first policy here in the Greater Seattle Area. We’ve also enjoyed working with the international Shaper network on projects such as #Weare10, a media initiative to show support for the refugee team at the 2016 Olympics.
