Who We Are
THE IMPACT HUB was organized around the simple idea that when we collaborate together, we’re at our best. We invite you to be your best self; explore, teach, learn, and grow at our event. There’s truly something for everyone to find valuable.
If you’d like to take the opportunity to join us, send in your RSVP today. If you have any questions, simply give us a call, one of our team members would be happy to help.
Introducing The Impact Hub
Our aim is to inspire more females in the city who are working for a business or owning their own business, and better support their success through our women focused yet gender inclusive events.
We provide a physical platform where women can connect, inspire and collaborate with each other, and access the resources they need to maximize their self business growth.
Join in on an evenings of inspiring keynotes, engaging panels, and actionable workshops. We're bringing together founders and funders, freelancers and hiring managers, job seekers and cool companies, learners and teachers.
Together, we'll stand on the shoulders of each others' experiences and leapfrog the competition. We'll walk away with new friends, new mentors, and new cofounders—a support system that propels us toward our wildest dreams.
Why We Started
We are two women who met each other and realised how much we could learn from each other and grow together.
Having met many women in business, there is a general competitive air. Often when women do come together it is to unite against a common evil and often takes shape as a protest or standing together against being treated unfairly. Although this is powerful, it is only a glimpse of what women can achieve when they stand together.
We want to facilitate an environment that removes both competition and a scarcity mentality against women in the work place and relationships. We plan to do this by creating immersive experiences that celebrate and empower strong minded women. The Impact Hub is exactly is a place where like minded individuals can come together and support each other in all areas of their lives.
Our events are women focused but not women exclusive. We plan to create an
inclusive space where all genders a can take part in crucial conversations around the upliftment of women.
