Impact Hub Berlin will open Europe’s largest Impact Hub by the end of the year
In November 2021, Impact Hub Berlin will open a 3,500m² collaborative community space for the city’s new generation of impact entrepreneurs. This will be a space to connect with other innovators, attend inspiring events and access the resources needed to grow impact. With over 100 desks, 25 team offices, maker spaces, a café and rooftop greenhouse, it will be Europe’s largest Impact Hub to date.
Since 2014, Impact Hub Berlin’s community, coworking space and consultancy for sustainable and social innovation from is run from it's Kreuzberg location. Having grown the local community to over 150 entrepreneurs and supported the growth of hundreds more impact ventures through events, accelerators and hackathons, the next exciting chapter is now on the horizon – a new home with more space to create impact.
To build back better after the pandemic, a new generation of entrepreneurs needs to be empowered – one that focuses on creating a future that works for all. The ambition to change the economy for the better in the long term can only be achieved if more space to inspire, connect and enable is offered to an even larger number of innovators.
The right home in the right environment is now found at the Kindl Areal in Rollbergstraße in Berlin-Neukölln. The Kindl Areal is already home to a number of sustainable and socially oriented organisations, including CRCLR, whose purpose is to drive Berlin’s development towards a circular economy – one in which resources are reused and repurposed instead of wasted. Over the past few years, the CRCLR team has played a central role in planning the conversion of the former Kindl warehouse, known as the CRCLR House.
This building will become the new home of Impact Hub Berlin, and aims to serve as a lighthouse project for circular architecture and sustainable operations. The implementation partner for the interior space design again is LXSY Architekten, the architectural firm who won the German Design Award for their work on the current space.
The thematic focus has been sharpened in line with this next big step, now focussing on supporting innovation and entrepreneurship in four key ecosystems: diversity and inclusion, sustainable food, green technology, and the circular economy. Each of these impact ecosystems comprises events, publications, innovation programmes, and – of course – the local and global community of changemakers.
