Impact Hub Birmingham

We believe those that are willing to dream, dare and have a heart for a better Birmingham need a place where they can realise these dreams.

A place to collaborate and discuss, challenge and be challenged, provoke and be provoked; a place where paradox and contradictions can cohabit with ease. A platform where they can meet like minded creators and disruptors and where they can continually challenge themselves and others. Innovating around solving systemic challenges in our city and beyond. This place is Impact Hub Birmingham and it is many things all at the same time.

We want to empower a collective movement to bring about change in our city, embracing a diverse range of people and organisations with a whole host of experiences and skills.

Invest in this movement by joining as a member, hosting events, sponsoring programmes or simply convening a whole new conversation around your view of change.
