Globally Connected: Le Salon 1861 aligns Montreal
with worldwide social Impact Hub network.
For Immediate Release, May 17, 2017, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Montreal becomes the 101st Impact Hub city with the transformation of the co-creation initiative at Le Salon 1861 into Impact Hub Montréal. Impact Hub is a global network of spaces designed for collaboration on enterprising ideas and enabling people to take entrepreneurial action to build a better world.
Having promoted collaborative, socially-conscious enterprises from the start, the efforts of Le Salon 1861 community will now have the benefit of resourcing, accessing, and interacting with a strong network of changemakers around the world.
For people who want to make a real difference, the Impact Hub is a locally rooted, globally connected network of community-driven spaces that offer access to a unique ecosystem of people, inspiration, and resources to realize collaborative action for positive impact. Impact Hub acts as a common thread or point of reference, bringing people together from across sectors and boundaries, for an experience that is welcoming, supportive, and inclusive of all.
“We believe everyone has the potential for doing good and can take leadership towards our shared future. Beyond roles and systems, we see people. People acting on their passions, unleashing their creativity and who aim to leave a legacy in the world.” — Impact Hub
Impact Hub Montréal is in a unique position as it is will build on the momentum and initiatives of Le Salon 1861 to become the fourth tenant in the recently redeveloped church, located in the borough of Little-Burgundy, under the vision and aligned values of innovative local real estate developer and B Corp, Gestion Immobilière Quo Vadis.
“We are curators of the physical, virtual and social spaces where the change we want to see in the world is happening. Our spaces help materialize this change by offering a unique mix of infrastructure, connections and inspiration. We see ourselves having an active role in working with people who want to move their ideas from intent to action and impact. People with ideas that bring meaningful solutions to social, economic and ecological challenges. The people in our communities work on prototyping new approaches that are more sustainable, impactful and scalable within local and global contexts.” — Impact Hub
Impact Hub Montréal’s official launch period is Fall 2017, yet the community can already benefit from the ongoing activities and Impact Hub network to easily attain global reach and connect with like minds.
