A worldwide movement, the birth of innovation, a business incubator, a domicile of establishing global connections and new friendships, where CHANGE goes to WORK — that is what Impact Hub Manila is all about.
Fostering innovation through collaboration, Impact Hub Manila is a zone where budding entrepreneurs and all kinds of innovators gather to create new ideas to make the world a better place, which includes creating a change in industries, cultures, and all other sectors. Simply put, it’s a co-working space.
When you enter the headquarters, you’ll immediately notice wall murals which screams creativity — a perfect caricature of flowing ideas. You’d be overwhelmed with the large amount of space, which figures how larger and brighter ideas can be thought of out of the box. Starting at Php 1,199 a month, becoming a member includes full access to Impact Hub Manila, exclusivity in other co-member’s events, connections to social innovation communities in the Philippines, discounts on services, and products of Impact Hub, among others. With a work environment like this, I know every visit to Impact Hub would be a fun – another day to grow, to care, and to build up one another. Because here, you’ll also get the chance to surround yourself with people with similar visions, perhaps even lending a hand and helping each other out.
Impact Hub Manila also imparts corporate, business workshops, leadership training, incubation programs, and a warm and curious community. With over 6 branches in Asia and 50 around the world, you are sure not to miss out on the improvements one idea can change. Over 11,000 members have been locally and globally connected, and they just keep growing and growing for the past ten years since their first branch in London.
What makes Impact Hub Manila different from the rest of the branches around the world? “Here in Manila, we focus on the combination of co-work, events and events space, as well as incubation programs to create a very valuable platform for entrepreneurs to start and scale their enterprises,” Impact Hub Manila co-founder Swiss-Filipino LizAn Kuster says. “Every Hub has its own specialty and focus.”
Impact Hub Manila believes they can greatly help the youth by “starting them young” as budding entrepreneurs. “By bringing together the diverse community, no matter what age or stage, of collaborators we aim to inspire, connect, and enable the members to succeed in delivering scalable positive impact to society,” Kuster shares. This is not only a space where people can connect and collaborate, this is also a space to succeed AND fail. Here, it is easy not to feel intimidated or pressured because you know there are others like yourself also just hiking their way up to success.
Every last Thursday of the month is F*cked Up Mondays. Chosen entrepreneurial speakers are invited to speak of their business failures, as well as an open forum of questions and answers from the attendees. After all, failure is not at all bad; it can be used as a learning tool to further improve a business.
With the Impact Hub Network growing worldwide, it has become the center of gravity for people innovating a new kind of economy, locally rooted, and globally connected. The change begins with you – take your Passion into Action with Impact Hub Manila!
