CHALLENGE

The Impact Hub, a global community of entrepreneurs with more than 15 thousand members and 90 offices across the globe, is launching a new centre for social innovation in São Paulo, the Impact Hub Pinheiros. An innovative architectural design gives this 2.400m² building shared workspaces, private offices, event space and innovation & impact labs. The project will bring together entrepreneurs, startups, educators and social innovators with the aim of connecting, inspiring and empowering new ways of doing business, to support the development of a more collaborative and sustainable economy.

MITSIDI’S ROLE
