Impact Hub Santa Barbara is a membership-based community. It provides a collaborative work environment and event space for entrepreneurs, activists, creatives, and professionals who are taking action to drive positive social and environmental change. More than just a space to convene, the Impact Hub provides curriculum and development opportunities. Groups can coordinate efforts and thrive under one roof as they instigate positive change within our community and abroad. Elegant and versatile, our space fosters collaboration and creativity for individuals, groups, and events. Led and managed by entrepreneurs, Impact Hub Santa Barbara will create deeper, richer community connections, and foster new initiatives for the next generation of leaders.

OUR VISION & MISSION

Inspire. Engage. Educate. Connect

Our vision is to create a community in which any entrepreneur tackling the world’s greatest problems can access the people and skills they need to start and scale their company.
Our mission is to build a diverse and collaborative coworking community that will make a profound and positive impact on people and our planet through innovative solutions. IHSB provides entrepreneurs the space, education, community and resources needed to build sustainable and scalable businesses that drive long-term social and environmental good.

OUR CORE VALUES

What matters most in our community

BRING POSITIVE ENERGY

The things we say, the things we think, the things we do—even the things we don’t do—all produce energy that impacts us and the people around us. We are committed to fostering positive energy that is contagious!

USE Teamwork and Collaboration

Impact cannot happen in isolation. It requires collective action. Collaboration is the key to solving the issues of our community. We embrace the motto, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

Take Action

Beyond simply appreciating new ideas and models pioneered elsewhere, we focus on implementation and measurable outcomes. We take risks and try new things.

Be Inclusive

We ensure that people from all sectors feel welcome. We create a place for them to connect with, and benefit from, the diverse backgrounds, levels of experience, fields of interest, sectors, and points of view represented in our community.

Give Before You Get

Strong entrepreneurial eco-systems rely on relationships that are not structured as transactions. We believe in helping others without an expectation of getting something back: “You make a living by what you get; you make a life by what you give.”
