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.

Growing

New members come and never want to leave. When even 150 workstations don’t cover our needs, our neighbour luckily leaves the premises next door. Armed with hammers, drills and other assorted heavy machinery, we enlarge our space by another 500 sqm. Three months later we have a new lounge, three meeting rooms and many new office spaces.
