Our 5 Year Story

September 2014 - 

We started as ProtoHub (Prototype Impact Hub). It was our 1-year coworking BETA to prove that Hawaii was ready for an Impact Hub and that we were the team to execute it.

We hit it out of the park!  Numbers for the year:

  • 160 members
  • over 300 events
  • email list of over 2000

May 2015

We were accepted as Impact Hub Honolulu into the Impact Hub global network to be a part of the largest global network of social entrepreneurs.  Once we were official we started the search for a new home. It would be two year journey securing the perfect spot. 

February 2017

We received a Hawaii State Grant in Aid to help us kickstart our Impact Hub.  This investment from the state was a major vote of confidence in our team and our mission. 

June 2017

After more than two years hounding and begging them, our new landlords finally agreed to lease to a coworking startup. 

We transformed this:

And opened our doors in November 2017 with this:

Milestones

    • 2018 Coworker.com Best Coworking Space in Honolulu.
    • HVCA nomination for social impact company of the year (2017).
    • 100% office occupancy well before offices were finished. 
    • We hit the 100 member mark a quarter before we expected.
    • 150+ events with over 10,000 attendees.

    Our Social Impact 

    • $175,000 in scholarships for memberships and events that created social impact.
    • ImpactART residency program supported local artists with studio space and gallery events. This was the first of its kind in Hawaii in creating a win-win for artists and businesses.
    • Hosted educational, environmental, and innovation events to build community collaboration in making impact. 
    • Partnered with zero waste organizations to pilot a zero waste business program, diverting over 95% of waste from operations and events. We also ban single use plastics and polystyrene from events. 
    • Organize weekly volunteer clean-ups with houseless neighbors. 

    November 2018

    Driven by demand, we added another 4000sf of space on the second floor of our building. Our offices were completely filled before we finished construction. We were the first coworking space in Hawaii to expand. 

    April 2019

    We signed the lease for our second location on the island of Oahu located in Hawaii Kai.  It will be 7200sf with views of the marina.  It will be sweet!  Target opening is Q4 2019.
