Top news: Social Media and Changes in Values: Correlated or Causated?

Jakub Havrlant, CEO of Rockaway Capital, plans regular support for selected students. The founder of Rockaway sees great potential in the academic focus of young talented people, and therefore decided to financially support 20-year-old Štěpán Los, who was accepted to one of the most prestigious British universities, St. Andrews. He has a long-term interest in psychology, philosophy, the study of the human mind and artificial intelligence. It was the breadth of topics that interested Jakub Havrlant so much that he agreed with Štěpán to develop a study on the influence of social media on human values. Štěpán is going to develop his study in detail in the future and wants to base his key research on the topic of the impact of technology on people. Below you can find and read his recent study:

At the age of 15, he was already convinced that he’d devote his life to CERN, and though during university his interests took a different direction, he did make an appearance at the European Organization for Nuclear Research – and not only as probably the youngest trainee in history, but later also as the youngest employee. However, one short meeting with Rockaway Blockchain Fund head Viktor Fischer catapulted him from Geneva back to the Czech Republic, and for the past half-year now Filip Široký has been working at the Fund as a Research Associate. “Working for RBF allows me to not only be part of an amazing collective, but also to constantly discuss new technologies and build the largest crypto fund in Europe,” he says.

Marek Šandrik: To be a bridge between the idea and the founder

“I’m basically a circus principal,” laughs Marek Šandrik as he thinks about how he would describe, as specifically as possible, exactly what he does at the Rockaway Blockchain Fund. And he’s really not even exaggerating, because in his eponymous position he really does play the role of a tamer – not of beasts, mind you, but in the very least of investment processes, and he also keeps the entire investment team organized. „I keep it all somehow together,“ he says, by now quite automatically in English. One can see that not only Marek’s British education, but above all his constant contact with founders from around the world, have left and continue to leave a mark on him – and definitely in the best sense of the word.
