Quito Hub

The Quito Hub is a team of talented young people driven by the motivation to positively impact the community they live in. We believe in the need of disruptive innovation to shape our country through social inclusion and economic integration. The Quito Hub Shapers are a diverse group of 20+ members coming from backgrounds such as: social entrepreneurship, education, technology, law and social sciences, cuisine, economy and many more. More than a network of outstanding individuals, the Quito Hub is a team of friends. We have launched civic engagement campaigns (e.g. Before I die I want to), a 3-day social entrepreneurship incubator (e.g. SPARK! Shapers in Action), a 125K crowdfunding campaign for the victims of the April 16th, 2016 earthquake in Ecuador and a 6-month Latin American Global Shapers speaker series about social innovation and leadership called INSPIRA: Diálogo Global.We have started Shape Talks, a dialogue of local trends, that is done every two months and we just successfully finished an entrepreneurship contest for municipal schools called Guambra Emprende. Our next step: become a leading Hub in Latin America and the world.
