Impact House open doors day II

August 30, 2019
12:00 pm
This summer the Impact House, thé hub for positive societal impact in Brussels, celebrates its 1-year anniversary.
 
Last year, Impact House was created with the mission to connect and inspire people who are passionate about creating entrepreneurial solutions to social and environmental challenges. In the past 12 months, our Brussels hub has become a true melting pot of societally-driven ‘changemakers’ – from (social) entrepreneurs to impact investors, organizations, government and citizens – looking to innovate, share and co-create.
 
We will mark the occasion on Friday the 30th of August with a celebratory ‘open doors day’. Visitors can enjoy a variety of workshops hosted by the Impact House members. It’s also the perfect occasion to discover the offices, event and co-working spaces, learn about the mission and vision of the house and its ecosystem and (re)connect with all kinds of actors within the societal impact field.
