Investors Circle 2

Empowering investors to make a difference through Impact Investing


Impact Hub Berlin’s Impact Investor Community enables entrepreneurs to solve societal issues through the power of business.


These entrepreneurs understand the biggest social and environmental challenges of our time.

But see them also as opportunities.

And create innovative business models to help solve them.


Once the “first love” money is through and investment is required to grow, strong partnerships are needed.

The Impact Investor Community bridges a gap that many entrepreneurs in Germany face: the dreaded “Valley of Death”.


With the Impact Investor Community, we’re gathering a group of people ready not only to invest their money but to partner with entrepreneurs to jointly tackle the grand challenges of today and tomorrow.


This first edition of the Impact Investor Community is made possible by Bethmann Bank.

The launch event

Our virtual Investors Circle: “Money Meets Mission” took place on Thursday 27th August 2020 and was the first in an event series powered by Bethmann Bank.

At the event, investors met tech entrepreneurs in the field of education and health. Stay tuned for more information on upcoming events.
