IMPACT WEEK 2016

When we opened our doors in August last year, Impact Hub was simply a space; a space to work from, a space to host events a space where you could just meet someone and get connected to the rest of the city.

Today we are that, and more. Impact Hub in Kigali is a host in the city, and with this we are curating different activities to engage Kigalians in this place we call The Home of Social Enterprise.

With an array of activities to engage the creative sector, business and civic communities, Impact Hub Kigali is positioning itself as a destination for many organizations that have our community’s interests at heart.

Impact Week 2016 is the very first of its kind. Impact Week is a week-long series of events aimed to highlight remarkable innovators in the arts, environmental sustainability and entrepreneurship.

The end goal is foster collaboration between diverse ecosystem players; bring together unlikely allies towards a more vibrant ecosystem that will find solutions to the challenges of our community.
