Crowdfunding websites are a great tool for start-up companies and entrepreneurs. They are resources where entrepreneurs set up a profile that explains how much money they’re seeking and what it will be used for. Investors then pledge money toward that goal. Then the sites make their money by taking a percentage of the investment. Confused? You aren’t alone!
To crowdfund or not to crowdfund, that is the question. However, Hera Hub is here to help you answer that question!
These lovely ladies will be leading a discussion on topics such as is crowdfunding right for you? Giving tips on how to do successful crowdfunding and how to leverage crowdfunding to gain notice in your community and media buzz and much more!
So if you’ve ever wondered about crowdfunding and had questions, this is the right event for you! Register today at http://app.wevolutionsolution.com/events/crowdfunding. A $29 registeration fee gets you not only access to this wonderful event and all the knowledge from the panelists, but also light snacks and wine at the event.
This event allowed attendees to “pick the brains” of the super successful women in a way that not many get to do…except us Hera Hub members! The panel answered questions on: “overcoming challenges, avoiding pitfalls, asking for help, how to succeed in male-dominated fields, and more.”
Just in case you missed it, here are some pictures from the event.

Hera Hub has recently been featured in Grasshopper.com’s article on the perks of coworking spaces alongside several other coworking spaces throughout the country.
We are honored to be recognized and would like to give a big thanks to those over at Grasshopper for interviewing us for their article! We love that coworking has picked up such speed and is spreading like wildfire nationally and internationally.
The article featured several different perks of belonging to a coworking space including things like networking, collaboration, community, and shared costs. Hera Hub in particular was featured in their perk #4: Learn Something New, in which they featured our Topic Tuesdays and various other workshops Hera Hub hosts throughout the year.
As members of Hera Hub we know all about the perks, the wine, I mean the seminars and other community strengthening activities.
It’s hard to put so many ‘perks’ into words but I think we can all agree that being a member at Hera Hub means belonging to something much more than just a business. It means community, friendship, like-minded successful women, embracing life in all it’s ups and downs.
So thanks again Grasshopper for spreading the love of coworking and shedding a little more light on how coworking is taking the world by storm, and how Hera Hub is slowly taking over San Diego!
Women 2.0 Founder Friday is a monthly networking event open to “aspiring and current entrepreneurs, technologists and investors.”
June’s Founder Friday was hosted sponsored by Procopio at their beautiful downtown offices. We were excited to see proud Hera Hub member, Anjali Cameron of Trip Larkand supporter Leslie Fishlock speak at the event.
In case you were unable to go (or didn’t know about it!), here are 10 moments you missed at this month’s Founder Friday.
These were just a few of the moments you missed! Mark down the next Founder Friday (July 13th) on your calendar so you can make it on our photoblog. And as always check out our events page to see what’s going on at Hera Hub next!
Felena has not only been recognized by the NAWBO community but also by other local resources like Examiner.com. An article written by Adrienne Moch put the Woman Business Owner of the Year front and center, illuminating not only her success with Hera Hub but also her savvy and fearless business sense.
“[Felena] leads by example to motivate her peers to take risks as she did. Hanson’s goals are to inspire women to explore entrepreneurial paths and encourage those who’ve joined Hera Hub to think big. She often challenges her members to publicly share their business goals with the broader community, creating a sense of empowerment and accountability.”
Many at Hera Hub would agree with this testament to Felena’s optimistic and enthusiastic attitude. Her attitude and personal story are just some of the traits that have drawn in Hera Hub members.
“Felena’s story is so inspiring; it reminds me that anything is possible and that we all need to work together to achieve great things,” says Hera Hub member (and fellow nominee) Vivian Sayward, founder of Vivacity Sportswear.
It goes without saying (but could be said more!) that Felena has truly inspired many and will continue to do so as Hera Hub continues to provide a solution to the shared office space and virtual office space need that San Diego greatly requires.
Last week Hera Hub was fortunate enough to be featured in the weekly Business Spotlight on The Camel Valley Life website. Many of our members live in Carmel Valley so it was wonderful to become more involved with the community. It was a great experience having David Moya in and getting to share this wonderful workspace with him and the surrounding area! David helped spread the word and praise about Hera Hub in a well written article and a very flattering video.
David focuses on the atmosphere having a “truly relaxing spa-like feel, which allows for women to feel relaxed and at ease, but still stay productive.” Exactly what we were aiming for! He also gets right to the heart of the matter when he says, “Hera Hub truly creates a community atmosphere, while also empowering women to take charge of their businesses and lives!”
It is amazing to know that even though Hera Hub started just a mere nine months ago it has grown into this thriving, heartwarming community of hardworking women. And it is with the help of fellow entrepreneurs that Hera Hub will continue to grow and flourish in these upcoming months here in Sorrento Valley and in its upcoming locations in Mission Valley and Carlsbad.
