Our Partners

At The HUB we believe that collaboration drives innovation. We work with a variety of organizations who have identified collaboration, social innovation, and shared value as core to their strategy.

By having our partners involved in HUB’s growing community and programming, together we catalyze innovative approaches and together we can do good better.

We thank our Community Partners for their contribution to driving social innovation and social entrepreneurship. If you would like to partner with Impact Hub Ottawa, please contact our team.
