Our Take

Impact Hub Kigali is a catalyst to foster social innovation. We are a global community, consultancy and a creative space. We work at the intersection of innovation and society to collaboratively create impact with an entrepreneurial mindset.

Approach

Embedded in Design Thinking, we foster collaboration, unlock creativity and create innovative solutions:

  • Inspire: challenging the status quo is possible – we do it every day.
  • Connect: accessing a professional ecosystem of change makers and curating interaction across silos.
  • Enable: we disrupt mindsets, share expertise and the necessary tools to create a better future for all.

User-Centered. Design thinking is centred on innovating through the eyes of the end user buy building empathy and gaining deep insights.

Experimental. Design thinking gives the participant permission to fail and to learn from their mistakes, because it encourages an iterative development process.

Collaborative. Several great minds are always stronger when solving a challenge than just one. Design thinking benefits greatly from an interdisciplinary team.

De-Risking. Using an iterative approach de-risks products by testing both their relevance and long-term feasibility prior to committing substantial investment.

Well-Structured. Design thinking comes with a lot of useful tools. It draws inspiration from the creative processes, that are divided into different phases, sprints and tools.

Optimistic. Design thinking, like many startup methodologies, is underpinned the fundamental belief that we can all create change—no matter how big a problem, how little time, or how small a budget.
