About Impact Hub Ottawa

Building an ecosystem and culture of innovation, entrepreneurship, and collaboration in our city.

Impact Hub Ottawa is a community of creative and entrepreneurial changemakers who are shaping a better future for our city and our world through social innovation and cross-sector collaboration. Powered by a shared coworking and learning environment, we are part of a global network of over 15,000 purpose-driven individuals and organizations in more than 100 Impact Hubs around the world.
You Focus on Impact. We Focus on You.
Our combination of people, place, and programs bring together resources, relationships, inspiration, and opportunities that help over 350 Hubbers do good better. Every day, our members make new connections and build their professional network and relationships, learn and develop new skills and knowledge, and pursue opportunities for impact both locally and around the world.

What are Impact Hubs?

Impact cannot happen in isolation. It requires collective action. Impact Hubs make up a global network of people, places, and programs that inspire, connect and catalyze impact.

From Amsterdam to Zagreb, Oaxaca to Ottawa, another world is happening and you’re invited to take part in it. What began as a single Hub in London in 2005 has evolved into a diverse network of over 15,000+ members in 85+ communities. This global community celebrated 10 years of impact in 2015, and is now the largest and fastest growing network of social innovators in the world.

Impact Hubs are where change goes to work. Part innovation lab, part business incubator, and part community center, we offer our members a unique ecosystem of resources, inspiration, and collaboration opportunities to grow impact. We believe a better world evolves through the combined accomplishments of creative, committed and compassionate individuals focused on a common purpose.

Each Impact Hub is a wealth of innovative programs, events, and cutting-edge content. Step into any one of our Impact Hubs worldwide and immerse yourself in the local experience of a global movement. Joining our diverse community of members and collaborators will inspire, connect, and enable you to develop your best work every step of the way.
