We share all relevant information


We prepared our general and regional logos in basic colors including our logo in a vector format and with instructions.



Photos of our spaces are included in the package. If you need any other shots or materials, let us know.



We have put together a cross between a press release, an introduction and a story about the history of a Czech as well as a global company.


We will be happy to welcome you in our flexible and unconventionally designed spaces in the center of Ostrava for video shoots and interviews. In addition, we have numerous tips for fascinating business personalities and are able to offer our facilities for permanent or temporary use by your staff. We would be happy to give you a tour of our locations.

Impact Hub Islington - the first Impact Hub ever

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 International

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.

Reconstruction of Impact Hub Prague

Lights, camera... action!

After a record-breaking nine months, we have funds loaned by friends and the space refurbished, and so starts historically only the second co-working space in Prague. Six people and one rabbit hold their breath to see how it goes.

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.


Black on white

We got the stamp to confirm that we have just received a grant for our dream project. We celebrate between piles of papers and folders.



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

Zdeněk Rudolský

Intervention unit

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

Space reconstruction at Impact Hub Ostrava

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.

First MashUp at Impact Hub Ostrava

Hub is loading

We organize an evening full of quick presentations in the form of 10 slides x 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 finale is loading too.

Impact Hub Ostrava opening

Cutting the ribbon

We are opening. In the course of good music and jingling of glasses.

Impact Hub Ostrava premises

Treading softly

We are slowly settling in the new recently-built premises of Impact Hub Ostrava. We support people with great business ideas, provide mentoring and start acceleration programs.

Impact Hub 100-day Challenge attendees

We accelerate up to the stars

We are actively taking part at all 4 Hub’s accelerating programs. Out representatives from Ostrava take part at Impact First, Social Impact Awards, 100-day Challenge and also at Laboratoř Nadace Vodafone (Vodafone Foundation Laboratory).

Oslavy prvních narozenin

First 12 months

We received the best gift possible for our 1st anniversary! The number of our members crossed the 200 mark and we couldn’t stop celebrating. Our Velvet Party was in the colors of the revolution and our joy was revolutionary, too.

Impact Hub worldwide

Global Passport

The Impact Hub family is located in nearly 100 locations and as we desire to connect it we are introducing new possibilities to our members. Now they can travel to all Hub's locations in the world and enjoy the community and work space similar to ours - all included in their membership fee.

Day Pass v Impact Hubu

Smart cities

Slovenské Elektrárne was fascinated by the concept of cities of the future. Therefore, we jointly launched a program for people with great visions and a desire to improve urban traffic and the environment. And there are many.

Grand opening party at Impact Hub Brno

A lot of space for everyone

25th January will go down in history as the date of the magnificent Grand Opening Party. Impact Hub Brno expanded to 3,450 sqm and became the largest European and the world's second largest Impact Hub. Yeah!

Hub Woodstock

Large spaces present great challenges. Therefore, we took advantage of the Brno hospitality and headed to our first intercity meeting. Over 75 Hub hosts - do you know how many unforgettable moments this brings?

Akcelerační program Chytrá Myšlenka Moravskoslezského kraje

Strong partnerships

We established a partnership with the region and helped with the Smart Idea (Chytrá myšlenka) initiative. As it soon turned out, the Moravian-Silesian Region has definitely much to offer and we are proud to have the opportunity to attend crucial round tables, discussions and hackathons.

Tilia Impact Ventures social fund

The first Czech social fund was established

Petr Vítek co-founded Tilia Impact Ventures, the very first fund aimed exclusively at investments with a strong social impact. The fund started with more than CZK 40 million and the support of powerful partners.

Villa of Impact Hub Prague K10 in Vinohrady

Vinohrady: another home of ours

We settled down in our Art Nouveau villa, the home of the former K10 Coworking, and we officially launched Impact Hub Prague K10. The Impact Hub now has its fourth location with a stunning garden, history, and a fully functional fireplace, more than 1700 members and still enough determination! Keep rolling!
