Impact Hub Resilience Africa – we need your help

 

It is very exciting to see how the network of Impact Hubs has grown from only a few locations in Europe to more than 60 worldwide! We are now entering into a new phase and are targeting specific areas to build an even bigger and better Impact Hub ecosystem.
With that in mind, we are thrilled to be able to share some exciting news with you. Building on the success of the Africa Seed Program, Impact Hub has officially launched Resilience Africa in partnership with Cordaid. And we need you to make this program a success! Check our website for more information about Resilience Africa and how you can help.

About Resilience Africa

Through the support of entrepreneurs, economic impact can be realized in the most fragile countries in Africa. But entrepreneurs in these areas lack almost everything that is needed to transform their ideas into sustainable businesses.
Resilience Africa aims to open six new Impact Hubs and design the infrastructure that will facilitate business ideas and creation in Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya and Sierra Leone.
Our programs will help over a hundred theme-focused entrepreneurs and ventures take their ideas for a sustainable world and bring them into reality. We’re looking for talented Impact Makers who are willing to be a part of the entrepreneurial teams we’re going to set up in these countries. Read more about our plans on the website.

Why we need your help

We’ve launched the #ImpactHubAfrica campaign to support this effort and are reaching out to you for your help. The goal of the campaign is to attract high-potential teams from cities across the five countries to apply for the program. Do you have anyone in your network with the potential to be a great Impact Maker? Please show him or her our website!

Other ways you can help us:
  • Share the Resilience Africa website with your networks
  • Engage with the campaign on social media using the hashtag #ImpactHubAfrica in conjunction with @Cordaid
  • Go for it, think up some wild, crazy and creative way to get the program attention
