Root Impact encouraged all the adjacent businesses in the social sector to cluster together in a place,
Seongsu-dong, Seoul. We learned that fostering the community of Changemakers helped the ‘Impact
Ecosystem’ grow faster. In the same neighborhood, people discuss, collaborate, share ideas and emo
tional vulnerability from time to time. As a result, it indeed creates a sense of belonging to the sector
and the local community. Since 2015, main media started calling this local community ‘Seongsu
Social Venture Valley’.
