"It is very good that you are developing a passion for what you want. It is good that you are really studying what you want to do. But the most important thing is that you need to plug yourself into the right community for you."

Revolutions empower people, however revolutions often create temporary economic challenges and instability before reaching the aimed reform and prosperity. Mazen Helmy shows us that, even during these challenging times, seeing opportunities is a choice. Right after the Egyptian revolution he build a co-working, communal space for Egyptian entrepreneurs, bringing together do-ers, innovators and positive thinkers that see an opportunity in every challenge. This coworking space, called The District, reveals that even in hard times you must persist to achieve sustainable growth and you must always try to see only HOPE for the future.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
