October 26th marks the official grand opening of the Center for Impact and Innovation, a joint venture launched by the HUB Seattle, Bainbridge Graduate Institute (BGI) and Social Venture Partners (SVP). The center was created to promote and support innovation, sustainability, and social good in Seattle, and will soon host one of the largest concentrations of social entrepreneurs and engaged philanthropists in the country.
This unique partnership was born out of a desire to spark connections and cross-pollination among entrepreneurs, nonprofits, philanthropists, and social investors in Seattle.
The Grand Opening on the 26th will include Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn cutting the ribbon on the new space, live music with popular band Dearborn, sustainable appetizers from Upper Crust Catering, three food trucks brought to you by the Mobile Food Rodeo, local beer and wine, showcases from the latest social enterprises to come out of the HUB and BGI, and more. The event will go from 6-midnight on the 26th, and is 21+ only.
220 2nd Avenue South, in Pioneer Square
