There is a place where the world is changing. This place is in Odesa. Hub – it’s a unique fusion of knowledge, ideas, and experience. It’s an intersection of social life, government, and business. Our friends say: “You’ve got an idea? – bring it to Hub”. Here, you will meet people who will support any initiative to find a solution to a social problem together. Here, the borders are erased between renowned lecturers and people who only start their business. Useful contacts happen naturally, all what’s needed is to share a cup of coffee together. And if you become an observer for just a moment, it’s easy to see the lit up eyes of every resident of the place, how people greet each other with hugs, and share the ideas on the spot. In such moments, it’s easy to believe in the possibility to create a bright future while sitting in the comfortable room with a cup of a ginger tea.
