Coming right off of our time focusing on workforce development in Austin, Impact Hub is shifting our attention back to affordability. Reducing the cost of living on one hand and increasing the economic opportunity on the other are both viable strategies to ensure Austin's accessibility to all.
This Fall Impact Hub Austin will be running it's second Affordability Accelerator bringing together the civic, tech, and real estate industries to convene around sustainable solutions to Austin's growing affordability crisis. But we know affordability in Austin is not defined solely by a reduction in housing costs. For the majority of Austinites, housing and transit costs are their largest monthly expenses and in our second accelerator, we are also interested in innovative ideas that address the intersection of transit and housing.
Enjoy complimentary sips and snacks while we bring together people and ideas to sustainably address Austin's affordability challenges.
- Expect meaningful opportunities to connect with subject matter experts and mentors
- Network with people from different industries interested in tackling Austin's affordability challenges
- Hear words from Mayor Adler on this issue and how our local government is addressing these issues
