Part innovation lab, part business incubator, and part membership community. Impact Hub Bergen provide a collaborative work, meeting and learning space for people who seek to create positive impact. We believe in the power of innovation through collaboration. Impact Hub Bergen provides a creative space for entrepreneurial people to connect and cross-fertilize. Our members come from a variety of backgrounds but are united in their quest to create sustainable solutions for the biggest issues of our time.

Located in the historical heart of Bergen

Holmedalsgården 3 is an old fish smoking house that dates back to the 18th century. It has housed many things since that time, but now it’s Impact Hub’s unique home. We have a members cafe in the first floor where there is always a friendly face to greet you and answer your questions. Alternatively you can join one of our tours for more in depth information.

Solution

Impact Hub Bergen provides a creative space for entrepreneurial people to connect and cross-fertilize.  Our members come from a variety of backgrounds but are united in their quest to create sustainable solutions for the biggest issues of our time.

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.

Our global community

We believe a better world is created through the combined accomplishments of compassionate, creative, and committed individuals focused on a common purpose.
