Impact cannot happen in isolation. It requires collective action.

At Impact Hub Vienna, we believe that everyone–from startup entrepreneurs to fortune 500 companies–can contribute to building a world that works for all. We enable companies to see how they can respond to the rapidly changing business climate and leverage cutting edge technologies, organizational structures, and entrepreneurial ways of thinking to grow their social impact. We work with our extensive community of social entrepreneurs to build experiential programs for our impact partners which range from one-off engagements to long-term collaborations.
