WHAT IS IGLU

Impact Iglu is a fast growing impact community that supports entrepreneurs who do business to solve societal challenges. At Impact Iglu we work with Aalto University community and beyond to inspire individuals to create impact through entrepreneurship. Our goal is to become the link between impact entrepreneurs and emerging markets to foster the creation of positive impact across borders. We organise community events such as fireside chats with entrepreneurs, impact business hackathons and capacity development programmes for entrepreneurs and startups.

NETWORKING

Impact Iglu aims to create a strong network of impact business actors in Finland and abroad to foster social innovation and creation of social business. Our other goal is to partner with impact hubs across the world to exchange experiences and connect entrepreneurs to local markets.
