Sustainable co-working space to open in Hamburg

Impact Hub combining sustainability with entrepreneurism - crowdfunding to fund interior

Impact Hub is set to open its Hamburg branch in August in a bid to promote sustainable and socially equitable business models. The provider already hosts co-working spaces in more than 100 cities including Berlin, Munich, Essen and Dresden and in 50 countries. Those interested have until August 10, 2019 to join the crowdfunding campaign to pay for furniture and equipment.

Joint, positive impact

Impact Hub was established in London in 2005 with a business model based on the United Nations 17 Goals for Sustainable Development. “We want to unleash the inner potential of our city’s bright minds and to have a positive impact,” said Boris Kozlowski, who is launching the Hamburg branch with Jose Saldana, Lena Bücker and Flora Rosenow. The company will open a temporary office near the Karolinenviertel while it looks for bigger, long-term premises.

Crowdfunding for interior decoration

At present, the hub still has “candidate” status, which is likely to change soon, if the crowd funding campaign proves successful. Then temporary memberships and workshops will be made available to individuals, small start-ups or intrapreneurs in large companies. Anyone who seeks to combine sustainability with entrepreneurial success can become a member and get a flexible workplace three times a week, access to the local and global network, as well as a range of workshops and events for a fee of EUR 75.
