We enjoy creating a space for inventive people

Our fundamental values are trust, courage and cooperation. We believe that together we can change a lot. And there are more than 15 000 of us all over the world doing exactly that.

Impacz Hub Islington - the first Impact Hub ever
6/2005

The story begins

In London, Jonathan Robinson establishes the very first Hub in the world, an incubator of social innovation and a platform supporting social businesses. The concept soon spreads to Tel Aviv, São Paulo, Stockholm and Amsterdam.

Amnesty connects

The core members of our team get together while working for Amnesty International. We meet Jonathan and become very excited by the prospect of shared space. Petr Vítek, Jakub Mareš, Zdeněk Rudolský and Petr Baše decide to set up the first Czech Hub – one of the quickest and best decisions we have ever made.

Operation Mitosis

Groundwork for our dream to open Hubs in Brno and Ostrava starts. We have established that the concept of shared space works and would like to transfer it to other cities too. What we, however, don’t know at this point is that we are in for a patience-testing rollercoaster ride full of twists and turns.

We go to Brno almost every week. With the strength of a super-strike team called Petr and Martina, we meet the local community, people from the area of IT, design and research. We invent and plan joint actions. We are also looking for new faces of our local team.

Right foot forward

Constructions have started and first events are organized in-between the cement mixers and piles of bricks. And because we want Hub to be yours in the first place, we talk outright about setting the membership conditions or perhaps brainstorming over widgets in the space.

We are sending an intervention unit in the form of Zdeněk to Brno, who has just settled in the city center for a few months in order to be close to all potential clients and partners.

Hub is loading

We organize an evening full of quick presentations in the form of 10 images per 20 seconds, inspired by the Pecha Kucha or Ignite concepts. Startup projects from the neighborhoods get a chance to step onto the palette of fame. Networking and looking forward to the grand final is loading too.
