  7. 7. Eventor HUB • Our HUB it’s a SPACE; Comfortable, inspiring and hospitable. Source of synergy, support and the will for good impact in the community. • Exact definition is that there is no exact defition. From our HUB each person takes something with himself: Experience, Knowledge, the feeling of being appreciated, they give more to our HUB; they give the SPIRIT.
  8. 8. • Our HUB is colorful. Every possible color. This is what makes it beautiful. Community of our HUB is ’colorful’ – from deifferent backgrounds and experiences but it’s that same Goal that unites them. • 1st winner of the ‘’Rhodes Youth Forum 2013’’ – organized by Youth Time Movement (Prize = Five digit amount). • Eventor HUB essentials: Community, Events, Informal Education, Innovation, Social Impact & Creative space.

  11. 11. Future: Eventor Library
  12. 12. It’s not about the money… So, if you really love and you feel your Big Idea, start to separate it on few pieces (small projects) and very soon you will have the full puzzle, the real success is on learning by doing, we started with a 2200€ euro seed fund then just after 5 months we raised it on +50.000€.
  13. 13. If you want to help and empower your community: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE • NO ‘expert’ bullsh*it • Their idea matters, not yours • Think outside of the CIRCLE
