ABOUT

Vuka Collective is the mission-driven organization that manages and serves an ecosystem of related businesses - including Impact Hub Austin coworking, Gather Venues, and Wake Up programs.  

The word "Vuka" (which means, to awaken) has been part of who we are from the very beginning. Now, through Vuka Collective, we are bringing the vision and values of Vuka to the forefront and making it core to everything we do.

All our businesses and services are connected under the Vuka Collective umbrella to focus us in our mission, meaning, and management. Our core mission remains the same - we exist to empower people to live and work fully awake.

Vuka Collective will allow us to awaken, inspire, and serve the Austin community through a dynamic mix of coworking at Impact Hub Austin, Wake Up programs, and Gather Venues
