ABOUT IMPACT HUB
Everyone has ideas for making the world a better place – Impact Hub is a place to make them happen. With 72 open Impact Hubs, more than 10,000 members around the world and a combined global team of over 500 makers, we have created a collaborative eco-system that inspires, connects and enables people across the world to sustainably impact society.
From Amsterdam to Johannesburg, Singapore to San Francisco – we provide access to spaces, resources and connections, knowledge, talent and investments to turn ideas into action and move from intent to impact. Started in 2005 with just a single Impact Hub, we have now become a tightly connected network spanning the globe.
From creating the conditions to start-up social businesses, to enabling successful social entrepreneurs to scale their activities locally and internationally, Impact Hubs are increasingly becoming the focal points of action for the global social enterprise community – and their launchpad to scale.
Impact Hub is about people who see and do things differently.
