"What's the infrastructure for realising innovative ideas?"

Impact cannot happen in isolation, it requires collective action. At Impact Hub you can access the resources, knowledge and talent to move your initiatives for a better world forward. We are a launch pad and incubator for impactmakers – those who combine the rigour of the entrepreneur with the passion of the activist. Connect with a vibrant community, work with other pioneers, meet in inspiring spaces, learn about how to make change happen and grow your business. Join a unique ecosystem where people and organisations thrive and are committed to building a more sustainable world.

Time for Celebration!

The sun tells us it is time for celebration & reflection! Let's celebrate all we have accomplished and reflect on our goals for this fall. At Impact Hub Amsterdam, we celebrate our 60-Day Challenge winners Sivan Breemhaar & Kars Gerrits and the progress they've made in developing their enterprise Afriek in just 2 months. Congratulations! Also in this Hubdate, Rutger Bults -project lead of the 60-Day Challenge- reflects on the program as a whole, to understand more about the moments in which entrepreneurs learn and grow. Looking ahead, we're excited to get more seed-stage enterprises ready for investment in our program, conveniently called Investment Ready.
