In a vibrant capital city, Innovate Communities is proud to offer a highly affordable coworking home to innovative new businesses and not-for-profits.
Based in the heart of Ballymun, Innovate Communities' Social Innovation Hub is a coworking space for a community of people from different professions and backgrounds. It differs from other co-working hubs in both its ethos & impact as its goal is to address complex social problems by supporting social and entrepreneurial ventures.
The Hub is home to a mix of people – creatives, not for profits, entrepreneurs and small emerging businesses and it is in this mix that innovation and magic happens. This is where we incubate social ventures that are committed to solving social problems. It is also where we support and develop small start- up businesses, providing them with the tools they need to succeed. It is a place to access experience, knowledge, finance and markets and above all, it a place for making connections.
The Hub is also a space where local community organisations can attend workshops on social innovation and find out what it is and how it can help them strengthen the effectiveness and sustainability of their organisations. We work closely with these groups to help them identify and implement new innovative approaches that will benefit their organisations.
Part innovation lab, part business incubator and part community resource, the Social Innovation Hub has created a very different kind of innovation environment. It offers members a unique mixture of supports, inspiration and collaboration opportunities to grow. Through the Hub, we look to help people connect with, learn from and support each other to realise their ideas for a better world.
