Realise your own growth and that of others The Impactmakers Fund encourages more #Impactmakers to start, grow, and scale. Here, social entrepreneurs who are members of the Impact Hub entrepreneurial ecosystem can submit a proposal for an impact investment. We see a future where people take collaborative action for a better world. Impact Hub is the ecosystem that enables impactmakers to thrive.
We provide financial support in a way that inspires entrepreneurs to realise their own enterprising ideas for sustainable impact and those of others. Impactmakers Fund encourages more impactmakers to get started or scale up. People with a great business case and little means can submit a proposal for an Impactmakers investment. The idea must be enterprising and have a positively social impact on society.
Here, impactmakers obtain access to knowledge about new business models, connect to a network of mentors and investors, have a values-aligned workplace, and become part of an inspiring community of impactmakers; in short, the right infrastructure in a complete ecosystem. Now, through the Impactmakers Fund those impactmakers who have an entrepreneurial view on making the world a better place can also get funding support.
We are looking for entrepreneurs who have a great idea but no means to take the next necessary step. We want to support entrepreneurs who share our values:
You do need to meet the criteria to get selected for the fund. Most importantly the idea needs to be an innovative concept with a clear start and endpoint that is executed by a dutch entrepreneur. There will be a powerful collaboration between the fund and the entrepreneur. The fund will be used for business/entrepreneurial development in the form of a loan of a minimum of 1.000 euro and a maximum of 15.000 euro.

As Impact Hub Amsterdam it is our mission to help impactmakers thrive. Impactmakers are people who have a great idea about how to face the challenges of our times, and then turn this idea into viable social businesses. Currently, we have around 300 impactmakers working from the Impact Hub, showing everyone another world is not only possible, it is already happening. More and more people join the movement by following these impactmakers, buying consciously and helping them succeed. The challenge is that for some impactmakers the threshold to invest money in their idea is too high. This means some of their great ideas remain untapped. As a community of people who care, we have decided we would like to help them by providing project budgets through the Impactmakers Fund. The Impactmakers Fund is an autonomous entity (Dutch stichting) that is overseen by Impact Hub members for Impact Hub members, stewarding a community fund that was raised through the 2013 crowdfunding campaign and ongoing matched funding through personal and organisational donations. The Impactmakers Fund Board consists of three Impact Hub members that take place on the board for 2 - 4 years. The current Board is comprised of Saar Francken (chair), Thijs Verheugen (secretary) and Tim Stok (treasurer). Would you like to contact the board? Please contact Saar Francken email@example.com.
