Is Impact Hub a franchise?
Despite the popular idea, the Impact Hub is not a franchise. At least, not in its traditional definition. Every Hub expressing the wish to become part of a global network pays the entry fee and quarterly contributions making the part of its stated income. This is the system of support.
What is your source of income?
Business models can be different in terms of the conditions of the countries where the Hub is created. Local teams create the Impact Hub individually without the financial support from Impact Hub Network. Sharing the values of the global network is important. Impact Hub Odessa is registered as a charitable fund. It cooperates with different grant givers, partners and gets its profit from commercial services as well (coworking space, office lease). Generated funds are spent on implementation of social innovations.
Who are the co-founders of the Impact Hub Odessa?
The co-founders of the Impact Hub Odessa are: Yehor Hrebennikov, Maryna Goncharenko and Yuliia Romanovka. Yehor Hrebennikov is the investor of the Hub. He is also the investor of the renovated Green theatre in Odessa and the co-owner of the companies “TIS - Container Terminal”, “TIS-Coal” and “TIS”.
