Become part of diverse and growing community.

How it all started?

Impact HUB Bratislava started as an aspiring idea and concept during 2014 and opened its doors at the end of 2014. As any other startup we had to overcome many challenges and obstacles. Early days were quite bumpy and required personal sacrifices and lot of effort. It has paid off and our HUB evolved into strong platform and community. Impact HUB has been led by Braňo and Juraj who managed to find the way in difficult times and are still actively leading and managing Impact HUB. For us at Impact HUB purpose and positive impact is equally important as financial performance. We do care what is happening and our ambition is to be a force for good in business and society by supporting meaningful & purpose driven individuals, projects, startups and ventures with positive impact.

None of that would be possible without our team, members, partners, supporters and due to long-term cooperation with our key partners Nadačný fond Telekom, ZSE a VÚB Banka.
