Unhosted Through Fri Mar 27 (re: COVID-19)
16 March 2020 - Irene Bantigue

Dear Impact Hub Community,

In response to recent updates re: COVID-19, Impact Hub Baltimore will be unhosted effective today, Monday March 16 through Friday March 27. 

Impact Hub will significantly scale down operations during this period. Members can access offices and coworking spaces as needed with limited staffing and supports. Members should also reconnect with us on Slack (see here) for the latest space updates. Events and meetings will be postponed to June, unless granted special permission. Our team will reassess policies on a weekly basis and share updates via newsletter and social media.

While we scale back physical contact during this period, we plan to scale UP information exchange and resource sharing via online platforms. Now more than ever, we are committed to connecting you and peer entrepreneurs and community leaders to important resources and opportunities. Although we cannot be together, we can still come together. We can still combine our knowledge, share our experiences, and offer our help. 

We can still COLLABORATE. 

Alongside our regular feature Opportunities for the People, we will be maintaining a listing of resources and opportunities for entrepreneurs, artists, small businesses and freelancers to maintain your work, livelihood, and mission from the safety of your home:

If you know of any more great resources, please email Irene, IHB Events & Communications Manager at irene@baltimore.impacthub.net and/or add links directly into the document. With the rapid developments we are seeing, we will keep this document updated as we get more information, so keep coming back! You might find new information, links of examples, and new resources.

More details to come. In the meantime, take care of yourselves, your neighbors, and your local businesses and entrepreneurs.

 

– Your Impact Hub Baltimore Team
