Pioneering a new way to scale-up

8 Impact Hubs across Europe have come together to launch a new scaling program for social entrepreneurs.

The wheel gets re-invented too many times, causing a huge waste of resources and time. Impact Hub Scaling will provide support to successfully scale-up, drive social innovation forward and create positive impact.

For who

Innovative entrepreneurial solutions that tackle Europe’s major social and environmental challenges are all around us. Impact Hub Scaling is a program designed for social enterprises ready to scale locally & internationally.


For one full year, up to 100 innovators will be supported with knowledge, skills and advice from top mentors. This will support you to successfully scale your businesses and create a positive impact. Impact Hub Scaling is supported by experienced partners in each location who accompany the ventures on their year long journey. Every selected team of social innovators works closely with Scaling Managers, expert mentors who provide the social innovators with knowledge, skills and advice throughout Impact Hub Scaling.


Amsterdam, Athens, Bucharest, London, Madrid, Milan, Stockholm and Vienna and every place in between.
