Our Community Partnership is the model for doing exactly that.It allows us to open up our knowledge to interested organizations, learn from each other, offer a broad range of capacity building and networking opportunities and engage Community Partners in joint projects and opportunities. Only if we build a strong and bold network of organizations and communities, we can challenge the status quo.
Q: It seems it’s an opportunity with a lot of potential! What are the benefits of being an Impact Hub Community Partner?
There are many great opportunities for Community Partners to engage! One of the main benefits is connecting with our 107 Impact Hubs in 63 countries and, of course, all other organizations that become Community Partners to explore learning and business opportunities.
Another great value is the access to capacity building activities — both virtually and in-person — for organizations and teams members interested in deepening their knowledge on the impact entrepreneurship ecosystem. This year, we will have webinars on topics such as entrepreneurial support from ideation to scaling, circular economy, diversity, equity and inclusion, wellbeing, sustainable programs structures or fundraising and business development.
Our Makers Festivals, our online capacity-building conferences, and regional gatherings will also be great opportunities for learning and networking. Besides this, we want to build partnerships with our Community Partners and connect our members with theirs so that we can achieve impact at scale, together.
Q: And how is partnering with Impact Hub going to help organizations to achieve impact at scale?
As a network we inspire, connect and enable changemakers at scale — being part of a peer-to-peer network like ours, will enable organizations to provide better access to markets, knowledge, talents and resources to their members and beneficiaries.
