What is an Impact Hub?

An Impact Hub consists of three distinct elements. First, it is a vibrant community of passionate and entrepreneurial people who share an underlying intention to bring about positive change and act as peers to cross-fertilize and develop their ventures.  Second, It is a source of inspiration that provides meaningful content through thought-provoking events, innovation labs, learning spaces, incubation, programs and facilitated conversations that support positive impact.  Third, an Impact Hub is a physical space that offers a flexible and highly functional infrastructure to work, meet, learn and connect. The magic happens where these three elements connect and are brought to life through the art of hosting.

No. Each local Impact Hub is owned and run by its founding team and each local founding team co-owns and co-creates the global network. Therefore, a collective of all Impact Hubs, the “Impact Hub Association”, owns the Impact Hub IP and Brand. Impact Hub Global is currently run by a dispersed global team.
