Impact accelerator hub launched in the CBD
In what is its centenary year, the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation has launched its new For Purpose Impact Accelerator Hub on Queen St.
The new hub will be a space where funders, social enterprises, and other solution-oriented for-purpose organisations will collaborate to develop solutions to address some of Melbourne’s most urgent challenges, including climate change affordable housing and jobs in social enterprise.
The hub will act as a centre for philanthropic, social and climate innovation to implement the foundation’s new strategy for the next 10 years.
The Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation will be joined by some of Melbourne’s leading social enterprises, including champion for youth employment, Good Cycles, and Infoxchange, tackling social challenges through the creative use of technology.
The new space was officially launched by Lord Mayor Sally Capp on November 15 alongside LMFC CEO Dr Catherine Brown OAM, Good Cycles CEO Jaison Hoernel, Infoxchange CEO David Spriggs and architect at Six Degrees Mastura Mokhtar.
The hub is located at level 4, 454 Queen St, Melbourne.
