If you’re a social entrepreneur chances are good that you get this. Launching and running a social venture can be lonely. That’s why around the world so many of us have found ourselves working an Impact Hub. Kyle Ashby is the founder of Impact Hub Santa Barbara. He notes, “Impact focused entrepreneurs often work alone, in locations where collaboration is not available. They also have difficulties finding mentors, associates, financing and the resources needed to grow their business.” Enter Impact Hub Santa Barbara, right on cue. “The Impact HUB Santa Barbara will enable entrepreneurs, startups, and organizations to coordinate efforts and thrive in a central meeting point for those who want to make our community and world a better place. This will be done through a community focused collaborative work space and center for learning and growth for entrepreneurs and change makers.” Kyle’s vision for the Hub is inspiring. “The Impact HUB Santa Barbara will create deeper connections, establish a platform to build on, and foster new initiatives for the next generation of entrepreneurs, leaders and companies to solve social problems through innovative ventures, and define and change the future of our community and the world.” At the moment, Impact Hub Santa Barbara is running a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to raise the money needed to open.
