Vision

People taking collaborative action for a better world.

 

We believe everyone has the potential for doing good and can take leadership towards our shared future. Beyond roles and systems, we see people. People acting on their passions, unleashing their creativity and who aim to leave a legacy in the world.

We envision a future where each individual and organization will take courageous and mindful action, and use their potential to create positive impact for a just and sustainable world. Most importantly we see the need to take this step together. To empower and trust each other and build the new social infrastructure required to make a significant, globally local shift. We pioneer this future in service of the world at large, people and planet together.

Mission

Around the world we inspire connect, and enable people to take entrepreneurial action for positive impact.

Solution

Impact Hub Geneva is a catalyst to foster social innovation. We are a global coworking community, consultancy and a creative space. We work at the intersection of innovation and society to collaboratively create impact with an entrepreneurial mindset.

Approach

Embedded in Design Thinking, we foster collaboration, unlock creativity and create innovative solutions:

  • Inspire: challenging the status quo is possible – we do it every day.
  • Connect: accessing a professional ecosystem of change makers and curating interaction across silos.
  • Enable: we disrupt mindsets, share expertise and the necessary tools to create a better future for all.

User-Centered. Design thinking is centred on innovating through the eyes of the end user buy building empathy and gaining deep insights.

Experimental. Design thinking gives the participant permission to fail and to learn from their mistakes, because it encourages an iterative development process.

Collaborative. Several great minds are always stronger when solving a challenge than just one. Design thinking benefits greatly from an interdisciplinary team.

De-Risking. Using an iterative approach de-risks products by testing both their relevance and long-term feasibility prior to committing substantial investment.

Well-Structured. Design thinking comes with a lot of useful tools. It draws inspiration from the creative processes, that are divided into different phases, sprints and tools.

Optimistic. Design thinking, like many startup methodologies, is underpinned the fundamental belief that we can all create change—no matter how big a problem, how little time, or how small a budget.
