European Gathering’22 – Belgrade

September 14 @ 17:00 - September 16 @ 19:30 CDT

Impact Hub Network European Gathering

Impact Hub Network European Gathering

As we are witnessing daily challenges in our European region, we believe our values of trust, courage and collaboration are best when in practice – some conversations are just better when in person. It’s been three years since the last physical Regional Gathering in Odesa, so how about we take our collective impact to the next level by doing business together during the next Impact Hub’s European Gathering.

🎉 Save the date, grab your tickets, and join us on September 14th, 2022 in Belgrade, Serbia. 🎉 Check out the FULL AGENDA 👉 HERE

Early bird tickets will be available at a discounted price of EUR 210 until 15 July, but as their number is limited may sell out before then – so don’t wait!

Setting the tone

We shift to a system of change: how might we realize the untapped potential of existing partnerships at local and European level towards a greener, digital, more inclusive economy?

We designed this year’s regional Gathering to build our internal capacities as Makers of the network and designed its objectives around what is set out by the 🌿European Green Deal. We will get to reflect on how conflict resolution brings empathy and dialogue needed to amplify impact, which we can achieve only collectively and not in isolation.

And all of these discussions, networking and business opportunity building will happen in Belgrade, during the 🏳️‍🌈EuroPride week. Join us to get inspired, build relationships, develop your skills, and explore Belgrade through conversations about what it means to be an #impactmaker💪

Let’s bring together the community of Impact Hubs throughout Europe towards one common goal we aim to achieve in the heart of the Western Balkans – create a change for a better world our future generations can proudly inherit.

What’s in it for me?

Regardless of your role within the Impact Hub network, we will make sure that you will get the most out of this experience!

At the European Gathering in Belgrade you will be

  • Building team capacities and Learning from peers
  • Joining outdoor activities to discover solutions to the urban challenges with local community
  • Meeting potential new partners, investors and collaborators to build trans-local solutions
  • Connecting with the EuroPride 2022 ‘s team for conferences, and networking events
  • Party in Belgrade

Who can attend?

Our invitation is for European Region Impact Hubs to send makers that usually do not have the opportunity to attend the Global Gathering and those in positions that would benefit most from an increased inter-Impact Hub collaboration or learnings about the topics which will be discussed in the agenda. You can send as many members of your team as you wish – tickets are allocated on a first come first serve basis. This year we are also extending the invitation to some of your Community members (see below).

Do you have a ⭐ Rock Star Maker ⭐ in your community?

We are inviting the best rocking members from any European Impact Hub to join a hybrid Demo Day (in person and live streamed) where 5 of the selected best European startup founders will pitch to a jury of handpicked investors and ecosystem partners. Nominate a Startup Founder in your community to join for free and compete for cash awards, while you will earn a 50% discount on one Maker’s ticket as well!

👉 IMPORTANT: IF YOU ARE BRINGING A ROCK STAR AND WANT TO GET YOUR 50% DISCOUNT IN ONE OF YOUR MAKERS TICKET, REACH OUT TO [email protected], SO THEY CAN GIVE YOU THE DISCOUNT CODE BEFOR YOUR PURCHASE.
