Meet Our Makers

Over the last year, a rich community has been cultivated at Impact Hub Birmingham; attracting thinkers, doers, makers, movers and shakers from different sectors to come together by attending events, working with us and becoming members. As we move into our next chapter, we want to celebrate this community forged by individuals and organisations that bring their own unique dreams, drives and skills.

From design skills and public speaking, to coaching and screen-printing, our rich community is home to a whole host of skills and talent where collaboration kick-starts, partnerships are nurtured, and knowledge is shared. Our members are doing amazing things to shape and grow a city that we can all be proud of, and we'd love for you to meet them.
