Salt Lake City is getting its own Impact Hub, a workspace, lab and venue where entrepreneurs and business executives can meet and exchange ideas that focus on solutions to world problems.
The idea sprang from a similar Impact Hub in San Francisco.
"I didn't know such a community existed, and I was impressed by the energy of the people and the variety of projects and ventures incubating there," Dustin Haggett, co-founder and CEO of Impact Hub Salt Lake, said in a statement. "Start-up life can be difficult, and there is something intriguing about sharing a space with other like-minded entrepreneurs who have an interest in your success. When I realized that Impact Hub is part of a global community, I knew we had to open a space here in Utah."
