Impact Hub Islington
Impact Hub Islington, the original co-working space for social and environmental entrepreneurs.
A creative collaboration with 00 to develop a thriving community of social and sustainable business community with a strong local contribution.
In partnership with Architecture00, the brilliant existing hub members, and the global Impact Hub network, we’re working to power up Impact Hub Islington’s social contribution to the local area and global community.
The Impact Hub movement is one we’ve admired from a distance for a number of years. A long-standing sponsor of our Good Women network, Impact Hub is a global network of innovative co-working spaces for people working in the social impact sphere. The Impact Hub network is a fantastic movement synthesising space, affordability, and community to facilitate social change and so we were delighted to be collaborating on this project.
00, an award-winning architecture practice, approached Koreo in Spring 2018 seeking a partnership to build the ‘people offer’ of Impact Hub Islington. As space experts, 00 have a strong track record of creating physical environments to encourage communities to flourish but needed the people expertise to make Impact Hub Islington fly.
We see Impact Hub Islington as having the opportunity to become a thriving centre for social change. Perfectly placed in the heart of the borough with the highest disparity and minutes from Old Street station, the combination of people, place, and potential means collectively we can foster community, workflow, events, and programmes to bring the best of cutting-edge talent into the space to maximise the local benefit.
