After 5 years of developing the social innovation sector in Ottawa and building a community for changemakers and social innovators, Impact Hub Ottawa is embarking on our next chapter, and is inviting the community to help support and invest in our growth and expansion.

In May 2017, Impact Hub Ottawa expanded to a new home at 123 Slater, sharing 10,000 sq.ft. along with the Community Foundations of Canada (CFC) and a group of “co-stewards”, including MATCH International Women’s Fund, The Circle on Philanthropy and Aboriginal Peoples, the ONE Campaign, the National Observer, and Evidence for Democracy. Together, we aim to build upon Hub’s foundation and expand an inclusive environment where social entrepreneurs and innovators, philanthropic leaders and funders, activists and policy researchers, non-profits and tech startups, public servants and artists, and changemakers come together to connect, share, learn, work, and do good better.

 

This new home will enable Impact Hub Ottawa to grow with a maturing social enterprise and social innovation sector here in Ottawa that now needs the resources to grow and scale. For the first time, we’ll be able to provide dedicated office spaces that can meet maturing needs and develop new resources, supports, and programming for social entrepreneurs to create a greater impact in our community.

We are inviting you to participate in Impact Hub Ottawa’s next chapter by investing in the future home for changemakers, innovators, and social entrepreneurs making Ottawa a better place to live. Our new and expanded space will allow us to grow our membership, support our members through new dedicated spaces, increase revenue, and put us on a firm financial footing.

With investment opportunities starting at $5,000 for 2 years (with a 2.5% return) or 5 years (4% return), you will help enable local changemakers and leaders grow their impact. Learn more about our story and impact to date, our ambitions for our next chapter, the terms of the investments, and the financial analysis that demonstrates our ability to make your financial return.
