This paper presents an overview of insights from 5 years of research together with the Impact Hub networks, analyzing a sample of over 6,000 social entrepreneurial members. Focusing on the types of support and resources that their members seek, we identify the types of support that are most sought after, temporal patterns of support, and how support needs differ along economic contexts. Finally, we give an overview of typical support institutions of social enterprises in Impact Hubs around the world.
