We offer a weekly Orientation for new members to learn how to make the most of their time at Impact Hub Seattle. Attending an orientation is one of the best ways to start engaging with the community. Even members who have been part of Impact Hub for a long time may benefit from a refresher course – we are constantly adding new perks and partnerships for members to take advantage of!
Orientation for new members is held every Tuesday from 9am – 10am. Please click on the button below to book in your preferred date.
FIRST THURSDAY COMMUNITY LUNCH
Our monthly Community Lunch is the keystone of our member engagement. On the First Thursday of every month, we serve up a delicious array of food from a local vendor and organize a networking activity, showcase a specific member or company, introduce the artists who are exhibiting in the lobby, or feature a new member program or perk. There is always space for members to make community announcements. Lunch costs $10 and is served promptly at 12pm. Members of the public are also welcome to join us for lunch!
LUNCH + LEARNS
Lunch + Learns provide a forum for individuals, companies and organizations to offer informational and educational presentations to our community. Impact Hub members benefit from regular opportunities to explore new ideas and content in a casual learning environment.
The Fall Lunch + Learn series kicks off on September 6, 2017 and will take place every Wednesday at 12pm through December. Visit our Event Calendar for more information!
If you are interested in presenting at an upcoming Lunch + Learn, we currently have openings in November and December. Click here to submit a proposal.
Our monthly member events are designed to get members together for a fun activity. We host monthly breakfasts to introduce newer members to the community, “Hoppy Hours” for beer lovers in the afternoons, coffee cuppings and other friendly competitions. Past events have included taste testing every chocolate chip cookie in the neighborhood, pie contests, happy hours at local establishments, volunteering at the Pioneer Square Spring Clean, and more.
July’s Member Event: Taco Crawl through Pioneer Square
August’s Member Event: Hoppy Hour with Tavour
Impact Hub Seattle’s Office Hours Program is for members, hosted by members. Members can sign up to host Office Hours – free, 30-minute consultations once a month in their fields of expertise – and other members can sign up for a 30-minute consultation with the member hosting Office Hours. Examples of areas of expertise covered by our members during Office Hours include career coaching, web design, and strategic communications.
Are you an Impact Hub member interested in offering Office Hours? Email us to get set up.
SPEAKER SERIES: REFLECT FORWARD
Impact Hub Seattle’s speaker series will introduce our community to successful leaders in business who have a social impact focus, commitment to public service and interest in civic engagement.
Our goal is to find out what makes each individual interesting – going beyond their experience in a corporate board room. Instead of reciting their CV’s, we will explore the interesting experiences they’ve had, mistakes they’ve made, and the life lessons they have learned along the way.
Keep an eye on the Events Calendar for upcoming events!
Members of Impact Hub Seattle can visit any other Impact Hub in the network for three days a year, every year. So what does this mean? Whether you’re exploring Mexico City or enjoying a business trip in Tokyo, you can stop by the local Hub, get some work done, and connect with our international community of social impact leaders.
With locations in nearly 100 cities across the globe that support 15,000+ members, Impact Hub members benefit from a diverse and global community that provides guidance, resources, and opportunities shared between all Impact Hubs.
Members can sign up on https://passport.impacthub.net/ to let the local team know that they’re coming to visit!
Becoming an Impact Hub host is great for people who are new to Seattle and want to plug into a community of changemakers. If you’re in-between careers and want to connect with a variety of different startup companies and social change organizations all at once, this opportunity is for you. If you need a space to build your next project and want to contribute to the community while you do it, this role is designed with you in mind.
A team of 12 individual hosts each commit eight hours/week to support the Impact Hub community, in exchange for a six-month full-time membership. The number one job of a host during your shift is to provide a positive, welcoming environment for our members and guests.

The Entrepreneur-in-Residence program is a six-month partnership opportunity for individuals interested in collaborating in the development and execution of programming related to social innovation and entrepreneurship at Impact Hub Seattle.
This program seeks to leverage subject matter expertise with Impact Hub’s physical assets, logistic capabilities, and dynamic community to enhance each other’s effectiveness and the cumulative impact of their respective work programs.
The number and type of programming is subject to ongoing discussion and can include trainings, interactive convening of groups, seminars, and presentations. A central purpose of the programming will be to leverage the human and physical assets of the Hub with people and organizations outside of the Hub.
Applications are evaluated on an ongoing and case-by-case basis. Click here to start the conversation.
