Sarah Haas Partnership Coordinator, Impact Hub Vienna

IMPACT IS…
Getting from Talking well to Doing good.

WHAT DID YOU DO BEFORE BECOMING PART OF THE IMPACT HUB VIENNA TEAM?
I was studying “Environmental- and Natural Resource-Management” at the University of Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU), was active in the Students’ Council, organised the Global2000 Festivalradln and worked at the Austrian Institute of Ecology as an adviser for Green Events. My current project is, together with a team of 19, co-creating the [sic!] – students’ innovation centre, Vienna’s first student-driven idea-creation and implementation space for sustainable projects and start-ups – perhaps the small sister of the Impact Hub Vienna. 😉

WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
The atmosphere of creativity and positivity at the Hub and getting inspired & impressed by Impact Hub Vienna Members every day.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO HAVE ACHIEVED AS PART OF THE IHV TEAM BY THE END OF THE YEAR?
Having created an even more inclusive culture of collaboration and feeling of community, having facilitating meaningful connections and having triggered fruitful member-to-member-support.

WHAT DOES YOUR PERFECT SUNDAY LOOK LIKE?
Lots of sun, no plans and just going with the flow.

WHAT IS AN ABSOLUTELY RANDOM FACT ABOUT YOU THAT EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW?
If there is latin- or 60s-music I can dance all night and day – if there is music I don’t like, I can’t even bring myself to jiggle on the spot.

PLACE OF BIRTH?
7th district, Vienna (just two blocks from the Hub)

LANGUAGES YOU SPEAK?
German, English, Spanish
