Salt Lake City is getting its own Impact Hub, a workspace, lab and venue where entrepreneurs and business executives can meet and exchange ideas that focus on solutions to world problems.

The idea sprang from a similar Impact Hub in San Francisco.

"I didn’t know such a community existed, and I was impressed by the energy of the people and the variety of projects and ventures incubating there," Dustin Haggett, co-founder and CEO of Impact Hub Salt Lake, said in a statement. "Start-up life can be difficult, and there is something intriguing about sharing a space with other like-minded entrepreneurs who have an interest in your success. When I realized that Impact Hub is part of a global community, I knew we had to open a space here in Utah."

A temporary "Pop Up" hub was launched Monday at 44 Exchange Place in downtown Salt Lake City, and the permanent facility will be at 50 S. State St. where it will begin with 13,000 square-feet for co-working spaces, more than a dozen private offices, four conference rooms, a kitchen and lounge areas. Impact Hub will be available only for members of the group. New members of Impact Hub Salt Lake include clean-air activists and health and nutrition specialists.

"Everything we do at Impact Hub is built around providing resources that these entrepreneurs need," Haggett said, "whether it’s the network that we’re trying to build of talented freelancers who can support entrepreneurs, or education and workshops that we’re curating."
