The Center for Impact and Innovation
HUB Seattle, Bainbridge Graduate Institute, and Social Venture Partners have teamed up to launch a Center for Impact and Innovation in the heart of downtown Seattle. Housed in the historic Masin’s furniture building in Pioneer Square, this unique facility houses one of the largest concentrations of social entrepreneurs in the country. Together, we’re creating a space to educate inspiring leaders, fund their ideas, incubate their social ventures, and lead the revitalization of Pioneer Square as a center of impact and innovation.
HUB Seattle is a coworking and events space for inspiring people. With a focus on supporting entrepreneurs bent on changing the world for good, the HUB is both network and nexus—equal parts office, clubhouse, and café combined in a comfortable community for making connections while progressing toward individual goals. Join us and enjoy blazing connectivity, inspiring meeting/work spaces, and a full-time hosting staff on hand to help you find the resources, partners, investors, and education that your venture needs.
Bainbridge Graduate Institute
The Bainbridge Graduate Institute was the first school to offer an MBA in Sustainable business. Fast Company and Huffington Post rank BGI as one of the top five Sustainable business programs and first by Net Impact in ratings of socially responsible MBA programs. Founded in 2002, BGI offers evening and weekend MBA and Certificate programs that thoroughly integrate environmental and social responsibility into every subject of the traditional core business curriculum.
Social Venture Partners
Social Venture Partners builds powerful relationships among people and organizations that are out to make our world a better place. With a network of more than 2,300 engaged donors in 27 cities (www.svpseattle.org), they help individuals amplify their giving, fund and strengthen nonprofits, and foster collective action to tackle our biggest social challenges. SVP supports King County nonprofits focused on early childhood development, K-12 education, out-of-school time, and the environment.
Built in 1907, the Masin’s Furniture Building is an extensively renovated, family owned, 30,000 square foot pillar of the community. This new partnership with the Masin family ensures the building’s ongoing leadership in Pioneer Square.
