Community Impact: November-December 2022
13 December 2022 - minneapolis

These past two months have been a great reminder of the Impact Hub’s global reach.

The Makers Festival: a Global Impact Hub event packed with interesting content, engaging speakers, and important conversations – from environmental actionable steps to the new trends of work, from experiences on inclusion action to learned lessons on access to capital.

Gifts for Good: For the first time ever, Impact Hubs across the US and Canada came together for a virtual Gifts for Good Market – an opportunity to shop sustainable and ethical products this holiday season from a curated selection of inspiring makers from the Impact Hub network. Check out the Gift Guide!

Global Entrepreneurship Week: Each November 10 million people take part in tens of thousands of activities, competitions, and events that inspire them to act and provide them with the knowledge, experience, and connections they need to succeed.

The GEW 2022 themes include education, ecosystems, inclusion and policy to spotlight impactful voices and organizations — as well as inspiring activities — that are helping empower entrepreneurs everywhere.
