The Tel Aviv Hub provides a place for people with ideas for social, environmental and technological ventures to pool inspiration.

On the top floor of a nondescript office building in Tel Aviv sits an unusual organization called the Tel Aviv Hub ( A space for social, environmental and technological innovation, it is part of an international network of about 25 such Hubs.

Co-founder Danny Gal says the four-year-old place is open to anyone. Currently, it has more than 50 members who use it as a workspace, and a place to share tools and inspiration, as members try to get both non-profit and for-profit ventures off the ground.

“We’re a startup nation,” says Gal. “But we understand more and more that this is not enough. You have to ask why, or what for?” Many Hub members are looking for what Gal calls “social investors” for socially innovative companies.
