Hub Up projects reflect our understanding that not all Jewish life needs to be arranged through organizations, and some of the most creative and impactful influences on a community can come from individuals or groups having an idea for a project.
Have you got a project idea or plan and need assistance to realize it? Do you need partners, professional support or resources to launch you project? The Mozaik Hub is open for all initiators and community activists, that want to make their project happen, and need professional or financial support.
How does the Mozaik Hub contribute to the success of your project or initiative?
- a workstation in the Mozaik Hub’s coworking space
- customized professional support in the form of consultancy and mentoring
- shared space for meetings and gatherings
- equipment and tools.
The Mozaik Hub’s intention is to be the ‘go-to place’ for Jewish community entrepreneurship. Our goal is to have 5-6 Hub Up projects supported every year. Recruitment for them will be done through Szarvas as well as public competitions and awards.
Besides the opportunities mentioned you can also apply for a microgrant with your Hub Up initiative. You can read more about our microgrants here. (Please note that only projects and initiatives from Hungary are eligible to receive a microgrant.)
If you are interested in learning more about these opportunities and would like to apply with your project or initiative please contact us.
