Impact Hub in Latin America
Our growing network in Latin America include 13 Impact Hubs with +1000 member entrepreneurs and organizations across Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Colombia, Venezuela, and Brazil. Impact Hub is making a focused effort in 2016-20178 to expand and strengthen our network in Latin American countries. The objective is to launch 4 to 8 new Impact Hubs in 2016-2018 and develop partnerships that strengthen the value these Hubs add to their ecosystems of entrepreneurship and innovation.
13 Impact Hubs now open!
Our goal is to develop 4 to 8 new and vibrant Impact Hubs comprising communities, spaces, and programs that contribute to the development of impact entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystems in Latin America. Year 2017 has seen the opening of Impact Hubs in El Salvador and Costa Rica, and we are supporting teams developing new Impact Hubs in Buenos Aires - Argentina, Barranquilla - Colombia, Port-au-Prince - Haiti, Tegucigalpa - Honduras, and Managua - Nicaragua between second half of 2017 and first half of 2018. We are also open to new applications from key target countries for our network such as Perú, Ecuador, Panamá, and Chile.

Impact Hubs in Latin America
13 Impact Hubs are up and running in seven countries of Latin America.

For Latin America, By Latin America
Each new local Impact Hub is developed and owned by a local team and is deeply rooted in the local market and community. External support is offered through a thorough Onboarding process based on peer-to-peer review and support, which allows key practices, experiences and programs to be transferred from the global network to the new teams.
A Global Movement
Our Latin American Impact Hubs make up a global network of entrepreneurial communities, spaces, and programs that inspire, connect and enable entrepreneurship and impact.
What began as a single Hub in London in 2005 has evolved into a global network of people taking action towards a single purpose: impact. Step into any one of our Impact Hubs around the world and experience a unique combination of people, spaces, and programs that inspire and empower people to realize enterprising ideas for sustainable impact. Although each local Impact Hub has their own unique community, Impact Makers from around the world come together on a global scale to share stories, aspirations, and accomplishments that celebrate our collective impact.
We are committed to continually understanding, measuring and adjusting our efforts to ensure impact. Our journey to impact in Latin America has only just begun!
