Last weekend, the Hub Zurich opened its doors and Matthias and Hinnerk decided to go there to represent Hub Vienna. The Hub Zurich was co-initiated by Michel Bachman, a good old friend us. When we where building the Hub in Vienna he immediately saw the potential for a Hub in Switzerland. 1 year later, they renovated a beautiful space, gathered an inspiring community and are ready to scale.

At the opening they also announced the winner of the Hub Zurich fellowship, which provides living costs and full Hub Membership to the most promising ecological enterprise and is sponsored by WWF Switzerland. The winner was UrbanFarmers with their concept: good food from the roof. They produce vegetables IN the city, FOR the city. For a year they receive seed financing, mentoring and expert coaching, and full access to the brand new Hub Zurich.
