Impact Hub is a global network of over 16’000 members in over 100 hubs in 50+ countries, and is continuously growing. Its main purpose is to make a positive impact in our world by combining the skills of compassionate, committed and purpose-driven individuals focused on a common purpose. Each individual Impact Hub chapter is unique and relevant to the local community.
At Impact Hub Basel, our aspiration is to support social entrepreneurs and sustainable innovators. Through various offers ranging from events and coworking to different incubation and acceleration programs, we aim to promote the interaction between our members and the different stakeholders. In this way, we strive to create a highly collaborative ecosystem where innovation and change are encouraged, where access to expert resources, inspiration and knowledge is made easy and where communication and contacts between diverse, skilled people are facilitated.
The Sustainable Development Goals
All of our activities are guided by the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as defined by the United Nations. To ensure that our efforts are as successful as possible, we focus on five SDGs that are most relevant to our local community needs.
Because the SDGs can only be realized with strong partnerships, you won’t see
SDG 17 Partnerships for the Goals
on our list; but it is there in everything we do.
Our Annual Impact Reports
Impact Hub Basel – History
Just as the Middle Bridge in Basel served as a connection point between Switzerland, Germany and France to traders from all over Europe, Impact Hub Basel serves as a connection between the global network and the unique knowledge, culture, skills and expertise of Basel. Impact Hub Basel was founded in 2017. During the first two years, the main activities were sustainability events at Launch Labs in Gundeli.
In 2019, we opened our first own space in Dreispitz. Impact offers now included an inspiring coworking space, sustainability programs and a vibrant community. The space was designed and furnished with a lot of love and passion. A focus was also to follow the principle of circular economy and reuse furniture, floors, ceilings and other objects as sustainable as possible. The journey continues and we are continuously creating impact. Want to join?
