“We wanted to curate a better way of connecting with others in the context of a live conferences. We asked ourselves, how can we help participants find their next co-founder, funder, or client and make sure they shake hands and not just tweet about it? How many times have we all stared at our mobile devices, endlessly looking for that magic connection, almost like a modern version of the Magic 8-Ball? How can we make sure they leave a venue with a connection that is truly valuable to them? The HÜB is our answer.” – Peter E Raymond – CEO ÜBERANGST

The HÜB will be unveiled at the Northside Festival, NYC’s largest and most accessible discovery festival. Hundreds of bands, entrepreneurs, filmmakers, innovators, and over 80,000 fans converge on Brooklyn over eight days to witness the most incredible showcase of “what’s next” in music, film, entrepreneurship, and art.

Hear stories from the CTO of Etsy, Bre Pettis of Makerbot, Brett Martin CEO of Sonar, Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures, Charlie O’Donnel of Brooklyn Bridge Ventures, and GZA founding member of Wu-Tang Clan.

Learn how to fast track key enablers and analyze performance enhancing matrices. Understand how SEO keyword rich trend tracking can lead to ROI while on-boarding the pain points of your stakeholders . This out-of-the-box, non-proprietary, open sourced event with no brandcuffs, absolutely no brandcuffs that will produce concept deliverables via a mash-up, in a real time, live gameifed feasibility slam curated into a compressed format of 30-second intervals.
