Hub City Teens.com is a lifestyle and social network site founded
in 2009 by a group of teenagers from Compton who wanted to create a
local website to connect with other teenagers in their community.
The site includes authentic content and stories from real teens
facing hard challenges, but who are committed to improving their
lives and helping each other to make it to the next level in life.
The goal of the site is to provide teens with a place to share
their likes and dislikes, their favorite movies, bands, video
games, etc. The site will also provide valuable information about
nutrition and fitness, teen pregnancy prevention, and other issues
that affect and interest teens.
The genesis of the project was a collaboration between El Nido’s
teen clients mentored by Saul Figueroa and the Maverick Angels, an
angel investor club represented by Founder and President John
Dilts, Fred Samulon (an El Nido Board Member) and Brian Wurfel,
Maverick Angels Chief of Operations.
