After six years of working together, the Impact Hub Network is sad to see Impact Hub Singapore leaving our co-owned Association. Moving forward, the local team is setting up a new infrastructure that takes on an independent direction. This decision was made as the Singapore team’s expansion goals are now set beyond Impact Hub’s bottom-up, social entrepreneurship structure.
Impact Hub Singapore started with 30 founding members and has grown to nearly 700 in 2018, featuring a venture fund and a corporate innovation arm as well. The Impact Hub Network now reaches over 17,000 members in 100+ locations and is focusing on tackling SDGs through trans-local incubation, acceleration and scaling efforts for social entrepreneurs and innovators from all sectors. As Grace Sai, Co-Founder of Impact Hub Singapore, expressed upon leaving, “I am inspired by the vision and values of the Impact Hub network, and would like to remain involved and contribute in some way.”
Asia remains a key region for Impact Hub’s growth, and we are continuing to work with many formidable teams throughout the region to establish trans-local programs that foster entrepreneurial acceleration and scaling for impact ventures. With leadership from Impact Hub Manila coordinating our various Impact Hubs in the region, we are continuing to convene stakeholders within the region for city- and country-wide sustainable development in our global effort to build a better future, for all. Moreover, we are intensifying our expansion efforts within the Greater China Region, South Asia and the Pacific.
On behalf of the Impact Hub network, we thank Impact Hub Singapore for their collaboration through the years. We wish Grace and her team all the very best in their new venture, and look forward to seeing their progress in the near future, finding new ways to collaborate on social impact and entrepreneurship efforts.
