Programs


UNDP and Impact Hub are joining forces once again to launch the 2017 edition of the #Accelerate2030 platform, aimed at supporting and promoting the most promising impact-driven ventures across the globe who focus on tackling the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).


As part of “Art of (anti) Corruption” campaign, Impact Hub Yerevan is initiating an anti-corruption poster competition & exhibition, in collaboration with curator/artist Samvel Saghatelian. Through this competition & exhibition, art becomes a form of defiance and resistance against corruption in Armenia.


Through artistic and cultural interpretations of corruption in Armenia, the year-long “Art of (anti) Corruption” campaign seeks to raise awareness, educate and shine a creative light on the complicated effects of corruption on Armenian society and beyond.


Robert Bosch Stiftung and Impact Hub have joined forces to explore issues of employment across Europe with a view to improving civil society across the continent. Five Impact Hubs (Birmingham, Florence, Moscow, Yerevan and Zagreb) will work on an employment-related topic highly relevant to their region and their citizens.


The Green Armenia / Impact Hub Yerevan fellowship program aims to support and sponsor ideas, products, films, documentaries, presentations, or enterprises created to spread the ideas of environmental preservation among the population of Armenia.


Impact Hub Yerevan in partnership with the European Union in Armenia has published a report analysis of Social Enterprises and their Ecosystem in Armenia. Click the image above to read the report and learn more about the project.


The American University of Armenia (AUA) / Impact Hub Yerevan fellowship program is the initiative of the American University of Armenia and AUA's Entrepreneurship and Product Innovation Center (EPIC) in collaboration with Impact Hub Yerevan to support AUA graduate & undergraduate students who are interested in developing a project, in any sphere or subject area, which aims to tackle a social problem.


Calling impact-driven entrepreneurs & innovators to accelerate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals!


The Izmirlian Foundation / Impact Hub Yerevan fellowship program will support social entrepreneurs and/or social enterprises who are interested in developing a project or enterprise which aims to tackle a social problem.


Have you noticed issues in your village, in your community, or in your country that you wished someone could solve for you? Great! You can do more than take notice. With our 30-Day-Challenge program we will show you how you can turn those issues into opportunities to improve yourself and your community by taking positive and proactive steps. This new workshop is created to provide all participants with the insights and tools to transform ideas into viable social projects or social businesses.
