The Solutions Forum is a popular Hub LA program in which Hub LA members act as “consultants” for a day to help a nonprofit address some of their most pressing issues. The Solutions Forum is a member-driven event, meaning it was conceived by a member and is put on by members.

You wouldn’t think that a squid sailing to the sun, a play-doh golem, and an 11-year old’s discovery of AOL Instant Messenger chat rooms have much to do with each other.

A Launch Party Recap and Heartfelt Thank You Last Thursday, September 20th, we celebrated the launch of Hub Los Angeles with over 500 of our closest friends, supporters, and sponsors.
