“We are in a new era,” said Impact Hub Austin Managing Director Ashley Phillips. “For-profit businesses are addressing complex social and environmental issues, nonprofits are growing their earned revenue streams as they develop sustainable business models, and governments are piloting market-based approaches to serve their constituents. Our traditional sector boundaries have become blurred and technology is at the center. Entrepreneurs and investors have the opportunity to make an incredible, scalable impact on these seemingly intractable solutions.”
