EL PASO — El Paso City Council today approved more funding for HUB of Human Innovation, which is in the business of helping other imaginative businesses get started. It offers consulting on various levels for both local startups and established companies from far away. Its latest clients include a company from France and another from Scotland which manufactures body armor for law enforcement. When those companies agree to headquarter or manufacture in El Paso, they may qualify for help from HUB.
The city hopes that when such businesses succeed here, they will grown hire more local employees, and circulate profits through the local economy.
HUB, however, is not for local business like restaurants and dry cleaners that do local business sales only.
