The invitation to the event on Facebook explains:
A group of us met at Future Hudson, and thought our town could benefit from having its own startup incubator. So we launched the Hudson Community Incubator (HCI).
For those unfamiliar with startup incubators, they are essentially resource centers for people looking to start and/or grow their business. We want this group to directly benefit locals the most, so we invite everyone to come out and share with us what HCI can do for your business.The Hudson Community Incubator website tells more about the initiative's philosophy:
While Hudson has been positively branded as a great tourism destination, there is a lack of resources helping Hudson grow to become a sustainable and welcoming community to everyone. . . .
In an effort to secure Hudson's financial future the city needs to consider developing other pipelines of tax revenues to remain solvent and not be so reliant on tourism.
Our community and collaborative team work together to make a modern Renaissance workshop that feels more like a home than a tradition working space. With no hierarchies and boundaries, every person, project and company in HCI must be united to create a collective masterpiece. HCI is a big family and can be home for everyone who shares our mission.Those interested in attending the soft launch of the Hudson Community Incubator on Thursday are asked to RSVP here. The event is sponsored by Pineapple Strategy, Octarine Consulting, Barnfox, and Lawrence Park.
