StartupSB Unveils ImpactHub


Big things are in the works for Santa Barbara’s entrepreneurial community. Last Friday, StartupSB hosted Julie Lenzer Kirk, a director of innovation for the Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration, for a lunch at the Santa Barbara Club before unveiling what will become a headquarters for businesses of all sorts.

Called Impact Hub, the 12,000-square-foot property at 1117 State Street will be developed over the next eight months into a shared office space, special events site, light manufacturing zone, retail shop, and even a café, providing an incubator-like environment to foster and grow small businesses.
