AND ORIGINAL THINKERS THROUGH THE IMPACT HUB FELLOWSHIP.
“Impact Hub began in London in 2005, has expanded to become a global initiative spanning Amsterdam to Dubai, Singapore to San Francisco, and now, Manila. To date, it has more than 11,000 members in 73 Impact Hubs. Impact Hub Manila is an incubator, co-working and events space for entrepreneurs, activists, creatives and professionals taking action to drive positive social and environmental change. The incubation program, the Fellowship, is a topic focused
entrepreneurial idea award and one-year incubation program designed to attract, select and support impact entrepreneurs to grow their innovations. 23 Fellows in 10 Cities around the globe were already chosen,” explains LizAn Kuster, co-founder of Impact Hub Manila.
As part of the fellowship, Impact Hub seeks out a partner organization that will allow them to address social and ecological issues anchored on a specific theme. This year, following the theme of Mobility, LBC in partnership with the Impact Hub Fellowship hopes to provide a solid foundation that will grow these ideas into scalable, innovative, impactful ventures.
The key is to provide a holistic approach where partners can help tailor-fit solutions for impact-makers locally. The program provides opportunities for networking through thought-provoking events, and community-driven programs anchored on a global member platform that allows participants to work, meet, learn and connect.
This spirit of a globally-connected community with local roots is shared by LBC Express, the Philippines’ market leader in payments, remittance, courier products, mail, parcels, and cargo logistics. Through its global network of more than 6,400 branches, partners, and agents in over 30 countries, LBC has become the Filipino’s trusted partner in delivering the padama , wherever he or she is.
“As a company that prides itself in continuously seeking ways to transform the industry and pioneer new ways to improve our service, we wanted to become part of an initiative that will cultivate ingenuity and help participants focus it into something tangible,” says Dino G. Araneta, Chief Strategy & Innovation Officer of LBC.
