We understand the word „space“ as an area around us, that has an impact on everything that exists. This area as it self is indeterminite, waiting for us to give it shape, to create something meaningful. It really depends on every single persons attitude, it is everybodys chance. In our Space we want to show people, who took this chance and managed to change things around. Through that we want to give people information and inspire them. As this is our first TEDxBudweis event, we think this theme is suitable for the beginning and also may help our audience understand the whole spirit of TEDx events

While studying on the Faculty of Economics and Administration on the Masaryk University he founded a community housing called Techsquat, that has significantly changed his worldview. Finally this was the reason why he left the faculty. He enjoys the early stages of technological projects, no matter whether they are profitable or not. He stood behind the origin of the platform for selling Bileto tickets or the first european public transport ticket sale by Bitcoins - BitBrno. He appreciates courageous thinking.
