What is Impact Hub Taipei?

Located just steps away from MRT Technology Building Station, we are a unique ecosystem of resources, inspiration, and collaboration opportunities that support a more sustainable world!

Impact Hub Taipei is where impact meets the marketplace, and a platform for local impact entrepreneurs to connect to the world. We believe there is no shortage of good ideas to solve the problems of our time, but there is lack of collaboration and support structures to help make them happen. So we found a Hub to address this need.

The Impact Hub Taipei community is made up of impact entrepreneurs, activists, creatives, campaigners, artists, freelancers and professionals taking action to drive positive social and environmental change.

Our adorable place is just one minute from MRT Technology Building station. Members enjoy a global platform connecting you to 11,000+ entrepreneurs, access to support, touchdown meeting space and hot desks; a flexible exhibition and event space; and a programme of lectures, workshops, and music.

We are part of a global network of connected communities that enable collaborative ventures. Impact Hubs unite people from every profession, background and culture with imagination and drive to pursue enterprising ideas for the world. These are the people who see and do things differently and have entrepreneurial passion to create sustainable impact.

認識Impact Hub Taipei?

坐落於台北捷運文湖線科技大樓站的靜巷內,Impact Hub Taipei 為一共同工作空間,也是提供會員各種資源、靈感、合作機會與擴大社會影響力的獨特生態系統。

Impact Hub Taipei 是「影響力」與「商業市場」互相激盪的空間,也是台灣社會創業家與國際接軌的實踐基地。我們認為,要解決社會問題,缺少的從來不是好的想法,而是團隊間互相支持、彼此合作的力量。因此,我們有了Impact Hub。

Impact Hub Taipei 是由社會創業家、創意者、活動策展人、藝術家、自由工作者、專業人員等所組成的社群,我們採取正面、實際行動來改變我們所處的社會及環境。

我們明亮、宜人的空間距離捷運文湖線科技大樓站只需一分鐘步程。除了會議空間、具有設計感的辦公桌外,會員們還可以透過全球的 Impact Hub 平台與全世界超過11,000名影響力創造者連結。這裡也提供活動展演空間的租借,彈性的桌椅配置及戶外庭園可提供小型活動展演、講座、工作坊、創意活動、交流會、小型園遊會等使用。

我們是全球社群網絡中的一分子,我們將不同專業、背景、文化,有著不同想像的人群聚集在一起。我們敢於走一條不一樣的路,懷抱著創業精神,共同冒險、實踐夢想、發揮影響力,為永續的世界盡一份心力。

Why Founded IHT

重新定義成功及商業模式

「好成績、升學、文憑、找到一份令人稱羨的好工作。」這是以往社會認定成功的唯一路徑。然而,我們認為前往成功的路可以有很多選擇,也無法僅以一種模式來界定;除此,過往的商業模式也以追求股東最大的利益為主要目的,但在勞工、環境、社區、治理、社會公平等面向同樣無法被忽略,因此,我們想透過Impact Hub這個平台,以及我們所做的事情感染更多人,「成功的定義」有很多種,創造正面的社會影響力,就是我們認為的成功之一!

整合散落的資源及協助建立台灣創業生態系統

台灣其實是一個很幸福的國度,在創業與社會企業的推展與協助都有許多資源,政府、學校、孵化器、加速器、共同工作空間、補助資源、各種創業活動及社群,各種創業生態系的資源應有盡有;不過,在我們開始Impact Hub創立的旅程時,這些資源散落各地,對於想開始自己志業或已經開始營運自己志業的青年,是相對不友善的,需要花額外的時間與精力,而無法專注在事業本身。因此,我們希望Impact Hub成為這些散落資源的家、影響力創造者的實踐基地,我們將一步步整合散落各地的資源,讓資源達到最有效的利用。

成為台灣鏈結全球網絡的中繼站

2015年9月,聯合國公布2030年永續發展目標議程,其中的17項永續發展目標(Sustainable Development Goals, 簡稱SDGs)受到全球廣泛關注,然而台灣當時僅有兩家媒體報導,大眾對於SDGs更是一知半解,我們對於國際議題依舊不夠關切,因此,Impact Hub的目標之一是降低台灣人取得國際資訊的門檻,將英文或較專業的訊息轉譯成社會大眾可理解的訊息。另外,Impact Hub的全球網絡,橫跨五大洲,超過85個據點,擁有超過12,000多名會員,我們更希望透過這個網絡,Hub與Hub之間的連結、會員與會員間的交流,讓台灣的影響力也能推展到世界各地。因此,「國際化」在Impact HubTaipei,只是日常一環!

What are Impact Hubs?

We believe a better world is created through the combined accomplishments of compassionate, creative, and committed individuals focused on a common purpose.

Impact Hub is a shared workspace, event platform and local/global community network for individuals who believe in the power of collaboration and innovative business solutions to accelerate social change. The first Impact Hub was founded in London in 2005 and has evolved into a rapidly expanding global network of over 11,000 members in 82 shared workspaces (and growing) – from Amsterdam to Johannesburg, Singapore to San Francisco. We believe that a better world can be created through the combined accomplishments of compassionate, creative and committed individuals focused on a common purpose - taking a leadership role towards our shared future and making a positive impact.

Step into any one of our Impact Hubs worldwide and immerse yourself in the local experience of a global movement. Joining our diverse community of members and collaborators will inspire, connect, and enable you to develop your best work every step of the way.
