Vision

At Impact Hub Baltimore, we believe complex challenges will never be solved by one person or organization alone. We need to work together. That’s why we set out to build a thriving, diverse community where people collaborate across sectors, networks, and neighborhoods.

Mission

We support and connect a community of Baltimore changemakers by providing an inspiring workspace and innovative programming to scale and sustain their social impact. Together, we are building an innovative local economy that advances equity and opportunity. 

Solution

We catalyze positive growth. Working alongside a supportive community propels entrepreneurs forward through trusted relationships and tailored resources to match any stage, sector, or idea. Impact Hub serves as a bridge to opportunities, people, and programs for anyone with a social mission.

Approach

We foster collaboration, unlock creativity and catalyze innovative solutions:

  • Inspire: Challenging the status quo is possible. We do it every day.
  • Connect: A thriving ecosystem of thinkers, doers, and dreamers. We break down barriers, build social capital, and advance transformative ideas.
  • Enable: We disrupt mindsets, gather resources, and share expertise to create a better future for all.

Community-Driven. We build with people, not for them. We support community leaders to build new solutions from the ground up. This begins with trust.

User-Centered. We listen deeply and respect the expertise of lived experience. We believe people living challenges first hand know exactly what works.

Systems Thinking. Start by understanding root causes. Consider history, culture, and context. Structural solutions go beyond the “quick fix” to create new patterns and possibilities.

Asset-framed. Our communities are rich with assets–committed people, inspiring places, and promising ideas. We have everything we need to solve our own challenges.

Collaborative. It takes many skills, perspectives, and talents to address complex issues. Collaborative solutions are greater than the sum of their parts.

Action-oriented. We learn by doing. We take risks, prototype solutions, and learn from our failures. Entrepreneurs roll-up their sleeves and leap into action.
