Lukas Beck/Co-founder Greendama
Lukas Beck,18, from Leopoldsdorf /Austria still goes to School at HLW Biedermannsdorf. He´s one of the founders of Greendama which is a Kendama Brand .
The Startup produces/optimizes/sells Kendamas to give the world an alternative to doing nothing else than staring at phones playing games
TF: What is Kendama about?
Playing Kendama is about concentration, fun, and focus on your goals. Its a nice little Japanese skill Toy that trains your hand-eye coordination and its a good alternative to smartphones, gaming consoles etc.
TF: What are the opportunities of our times?
I think the field of opportunities is endless if you have enough money.
TF: What are the challenges we have to face?
A challenge we all have to deal with is to make sense of the ongoing media surpression/perversion madness. It´s difficult to get the real picture of what is happening in our world.
TF: What borders need to be dissolved?
All borders of prejudice and discrimination need to be dissolved.
TF: What is your vision?
My vision is a Kendama playing world without people staring at their phones and doing nothing else.
Lukas will give a Greendama workfunshop at TEDxPannonia 2014
