Meet our Team

Impact Hubs are hosted by a team that help serendipity along by connecting members, encouraging cross-sector collaboration, designing events and opportunities and supporting your work.

The team that is hosting and facilitating this home is dedicated to community. We are growing and would love to see you get involved! Meet the people that make Impact Hub MSP!
