Our Team

Impact Hub is hosted by a team that helps serendipity along by connecting members, encouraging cross-sector collaboration, designing events, programming, and supporting your work.
Impact Hub Ottawa was founded by a small team of social investors who wanted to create a home of radical ideas that create positive social change. This home is hosted and facilitated by a multi-disciplinary team of hosts and catalysts with skills in micro-finance, human rights, advocacy, event planning, project management and finance. Find out more about our Team and the Board below.
