Out of all the spaces featured in the book, the one you are about to discover below is the space that introduced me to the wonders of coworking.
Back in 2014, prior to becoming part of the coworking world, I (Pauline) attended a social impact type of Hackathon in Berlin. The team at Impact Hub Berlin hosted the event in a space that wasn’t theirs, but somewhere to experiment. A few months later, when I had officially become the Chief Happiness Officer of a Berlin coworking space, I would find out that Impact Hub Berlin had moved into a space just 4 minutes' walking distance away from the space I was managing. Over the years, we’ve done quite a few things with Impact Hub Berlin, from events to sharing members. But what we’ve enjoyed the most, is watching them grow alongside their mission and vision to “provide impact-driven entrepreneurs with tailored support to realize, develop, and scale their impact.”; valuing trust, courage, and collaboration in all areas of the process. And while you might think of growth as square meters, we also mean growth in positive social impact in Berlin and beyond.
How did it all happen? That’s what you are about to find out in today’s story!
