Tourism Impact Hub is about bringing together a global community of creatives, tech entrepreneurs, startups, tourism professionals, investors and leaders from a wide range of diverse yet empowered perspectives.

It is about being part of a transformative movement, at a moment in history where the world picks itself up out of one of the most challenging periods for our society, our economy and our planet. Committed to positive impact, Impact Hub sets to do this by enabling human capability, empowering by technology and collective intelligence.

Committed to positive impact, Impact Hub sets to do this by enabling human capability, empowering by technology and collective intelligence.

Impact Hub brings together a global community of experts, mentors, trainers, speakers, investors and many more across multiple sectors to provide a pool of brilliant experts to offer targeted support to fledgling entrepreneurs. The strength of this community is huge, because whilst its formation is global, it is build around the principle of harnessing the strength of many for the benefit of local communities for whom tourism can be a positive impact.

Destinations who work with the Impact Hub are deeply integrated into the programme itself, ensuring that the ecosystem locally is woven into all aspects of delivery. This from the outside begins with the definition of ‘challenges’ or ‘problems’ the destination would like to solve right through to the locally sourced project coordinators, experts, speakers and trainers.

thecamp

Open since October 2017, thecamp is a starting point for exploring different approaches for tomorrow’s world, using collective intelligence and guided by a humanist vision.

We hope the discoveries made along the way will allow us to invent an exciting future, through new life, work and collaborative experiences. Food, health, mobility, education, environment... and now tourism, we want to develop new and positive paradigms for humanity and for the planet.

Each day, explorers from all walks of life come together at our base camp in Provence, France, for a few days or even a few months. The more entrepreneurs are diverse and connected to the rest of the world, the more they will build inclusive and sustainable companies.

thecamp’s startup program is enabling radical entrepreneurs to create successful innovation with purpose. Supporting early stage companies who aspire to create a more sustainable and inclusive future, at thecamp early stage startups find an extended playground to structure and deploy solutions.

thecamp’s residential programmes are hosted at its base camp in the heart of Provence, working alongside a world-wide community of policymakers, artists, designers, engineers, executives, children, students and entrepreneurs to create and scale
with purpose.

thecamp was created as an environment to explore and test ideas, offering creative stimulus in and a perfect testing environment. The Impact Hub’s integration with the local ecosystem is central to its philosophy. Working with host destinations to identify pilot opportunities through partners networks is a key first step in connecting the global community with a local ecosystem, where ideas can be developed, tested and rolled-out together with partners
in-destination.

Founded on the principle that entrepreneurs should be empowered to build sustainable companies driven by purpose, the mechanisms, networks, support and programmes offered by the Hub are all integrated to a solution which is adapted to any destination.

As we bring the best experts worldwide on each area of expertise needed for a startup to scale and succeed (growth hacking, HR, fundraising, etc) we also strongly value the local community of experts and network. Each new program will be an qualified mix of International thought leaders and local experts to bring the best of what a startup needs to grow locally before going global.

Tourism has the power to transform lives, bring people together and create economic prosperity and wellbeing.

We believe designing the future of sustainable and inclusive tourism can’t be done alone. It needs all stakeholders to be involved to better understand the consumers and users needs, the regulations and the opportunities on one hand, gathering the work and feedback from a diverse range of people. On the other hand, to create a solution that can serve its audience, we need to gather various talent and expertise ranging from data scientists, developers, ux designers to marketers, business developers.

We like to think of these hubs as co-creation studios where the best expertises are reunited to build long term sustainable and inclusive solutions for a new era in the tourism industry.

The Role of Technology

Technology has been the driving force of progress for more than 100 years and whilst we look back at the achievements of the post-industrialised world, we also look forward to what is coming next. Referred to by futurologists as ‘third industrial revolution’, the next 100 years is led by lateral power in a global world.

For more than two decades, technology has been the transformative force behind the total democratisation of travel. This has led the industry through not just one transformation, but many. From the challenge set by low-cost airlines, which exploited the opportunities of operating as an online business, through to the disruptive forces of the social economy, which has enabled millions of individuals to prosper from the visitor economy, sharing everything from their homes to their passions.

With vast amounts of data as one of the bi-products of exponential change in the hyperconnected world we live in, the next period will be defined by our application of data and the innovations which stem from it. Infinite possibilities to be harnessed that will further transform, accelerate, optimise and define entirely new experiences, most of which have are yet to be envisaged.

Technology in Context

It is with tourism in particular, where ‘technology in context’ becomes a key consideration. How will it transform real world experiences? How will technology root itself in responding to the challenges of recovery? How will technology be part of shaping a sustainable rebalancing of tourism with society at large?

Technology has many facets, from high-tech smart grid solutions enabled by 5G, to enabling solutions in the physical environment, in our homes and in our pockets. These have the potential to redefine the world around us and everything we interact with. It is the role of technology in society that will be the defining question for the next generation.

Ecosystem

A startup can’t grow alone. It needs clients, users, or partners. It is often hard for an early stage companies to get in touch with them. Because we work with a pool of qualified startups and have strong ties with public and private organisations, we give access to the ecosystem starting before the program.

We bring early on, experts, corporations, public organisations, starting with the selection committee. We then keep them engaged
with the mentors’ day a the beginning of the program and give regular updates and news from our pool of startups.

We identify early on potential synergies and help startups set up experimentations with key actors so they can test and deploy their
solution on the field. The ecosystem also includes a range of business angels and investors looking to invest in early stage companies building innovative solutions for the tourism industry.

Two Distinct Impact Programmes

Impact Hub offers two distinct programmes, a Booster Programme and an Accelerator Programme. Both are dedicated to supporting the founder community to thrive in scaling purpose-driven solutions for the travel and tourism sector

Working with the local tourism industry and the host destination’s team of partners, start-ups on either programme are given a clear development framework supported by networks and expertise on-the-ground and throughout the global network. Depending on the impact sought by the destination, each programme offers a different level of intervention according to the destination’s needs.

Booster Programme

The Booster Programme enrols founders on five and ten day cohorts to undertake a daily programme built around a set model of inspiration, mentorship and structured guidance. The programme incorporates a Design Thinking framework to develop and adapt a solutions to the market’s needs, set by the host destination.

Accelerator Programme

The Accelerator Programme is designed to provide longterm structured support to early stage startups on a three-month intensive programme. The program helps to scale and deploy within the local ecosystem together with a network of partners, existing purpose driven solutions to build a more sustainable and inclusive tourism industry.
