Impact Hub Scaling - Pioneering a new way to scale-up social enterprises across Europe

Author: Impact Hub

8 Impact Hubs across Europe have come together to launch a new scaling program for social entrepreneurs on April 22nd. For one full year, up to 100 participating social innovators will be immersed in the Impact Hub network and acquire knowledge, skills and advice from top mentors. This will support them to successfully scale their businesses, drive social innovation forward and create positive impact.

Innovative entrepreneurial solutions that tackle Europe’s major social and environmental challenges are all around us. Too often, however, they fail to scale beyond their local context. The wheel gets re-invented too many times, causing a huge waste of resources and time. Impact Hub Scaling is a program designed for social enterprises ready to scale. 

Social entrepreneurs. Impact makers. New radicals. Visionaries. Innovators. They now get the chance to bring proven impact to the next level by scaling-up their businesses locally and internationally. Whether through joint venturing, expanding or franchising, the mentors and partnering experts of the Impact Hub Scaling program are there to help find the best solutions. Because every scaling approach is different, the program offers tailored support to the selected entrepreneurs, meeting their unique needs so they can deliver even more social impact. 

You will have the opportunity to work with Impact Hubs across Europe. Scaling Managers in Amsterdam, Athens, Bucharest, London, Madrid, Milan, Stockholm and Vienna will accompany you on your year-long journey. These expert mentors will provide you with knowledge, skills, access to investor networks and advice throughout the program.

Applications to the program are now open. Social entrepreneurs can apply here!
