Welcome to HUG!
Founded by Randi Zuckerberg and Debbie Soon, HUG is a social marketplace that allows artists to sell digital and physical goods, and connects them with current and prospective collectors. Through a community-driven, decentralized curation process, HUG spotlights diverse creators, including and especially those from underrepresented and marginalized communities. HUG is also known for HUG Studios, which offers educational and advisory programs for Web3 startup founders and creative entrepreneurs. In November 2022, HUG consolidated the Meta Angels NFT community under its parent company Assemble.
HUG is committed to driving diversity & inclusion within the arts to build the inclusiverse, HUG’s vision of what the Web3 ecosystem should be— an uplifting, inclusive universe where everyone is welcomed with open arms.
We’re excited to help build the inclusiverse and welcome experts and newcomers alike — while giving plenty of hugs along the way! We support this mission with a multifaceted approach to increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion across Web3 and beyond.
