We believe Houston can be a role model for how the world solves its most pressing issues.


To inspire, connect, and empower changemakers, social entrepreneurs, and impact supporters towards sustainable solutions with scalable impact.

To create inclusive and equitable environments where people can easily plug in, access resources, support one another, and actively advocate for each other.

To deepen and strengthen relationships among stakeholders and build an innovation ecosystem where people collaborate across organizations, cultures, identities, geographies, and generations.

Why we need Impact Hub Houston

Houston is one of America’s greatest cities in every respect. We’re home to:

  • One of the largest and most diverse populations in the country
  • One of the largest ports
  • The world’s largest medical center
  • One of the largest concentrations of Fortune 1000 company headquarters
  • One of the nation’s largest Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Areas (CMSA) — the Greater Houston region is larger than New Jersey, and almost as large as the state of Massachusetts!

The greatness of Houston means we also face great challenges — just ask our friends at the Kinder Institute and January Advisors. Not all Houstonians can access our myriad resources nor enjoy the same benefits our city offers…and not all face the same social and environmental issues. We must meet people where they in terms of geography, generation, education, mobility, class, culture, life stages and startup stages, and devise ways to foster empathy, understanding, connection and collaboration among our immense community.
