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.
