Cosmic Hub Ecosystem
CIC Industry Hubs are gravitational nodes that bring together stakeholders from across the industry in one regional center of excellence. We believe that open innovation thrives when a shared purpose, close proximity, and a strong sense of belonging enables the free exchange of ideas. Cosmic Hub is a collaborative community, founded on the principle that innovation is not branded and does not happen in isolation. Therefore, we invite a broad spectrum of partners and members to join contribute to the ecosystem.
Designed to build bridges between the disparate stakeholders in the space and space-adjacent industries, Cosmic Hub is a concentrator and facilitator, connecting entrepreneurs, National and International space agencies, private corporations, artists, and investors who are passionate about harnessing the power of the cosmos to change society (either on our planet or on another).

WIthin the Innovation Campus you can find a network of investors, a private Impact Clubhouse for innovators, and a private restaurant to link them all. Joining CIC will also give you access to our global internal portal, CIC programming, and a passport program that allows you to work from CIC locations in 8 cities across 3 continents (and growing).
All hub members are invited to dine and mingle at Masterminds, our private restaurant for innovators, as well as get involved in our other activities through Venture Cafe Warsaw Foundation: Venture Cafe Thursday Gatherings, Trend House, and District Hall.
Cosmic Hub is the first physical and virtual open innovation platform of its kind
CIC Hubs combine both the virtual and physical community to maximize the connective power. Online networks provide flexibility and increase reach, while in person connection builds an unrivalled sense of belonging that powers collaboration. The hub home at CIC provides our members with a sandbox to test their solutions, a physical and visible presence in the heart of the Warsaw innovation district, as well as direct access to mentors and thought partners.
