Babak Ghassim

Meet Babak or as we call him ‘Gonde’.

His first start up was run out of a one room appartment turned office and was all about high flying business ideas.

It failed miserably.

Failing to accept his failure though, Babak gave it another go. This time out out of a smoky café, where he worked as a waiter during the day, running Stand Up Comedy Shows at night (Yes we were in the audience). Tens year later RebellComedy was the biggest german speaking ensemble comedy tour ever, playing in arenas in front of ten thousand live guests, reaching over 100 people million online and getting a Special on Netflix.

Babak worked as Co-Founder, CEO and Artist, writing and performing several poetry slams that went viral. His poem Hinter uns mein Land has been translated in over ten languages and is read in schools around the world.

After co-founding Keschmesch, a cultural platform where young and upcoming writers publish articles, poems and short stories, Babak reunited with his childhood friends (The same ones that operated the high flying enterprise from his one room apartment back in the day. Yes, that ́s us!) to form X Ventures.

With our nonprofit project X - School of the future Babak is on a mission to shake up the education system and make school cool again.  

Babak finished his Master in Literature and Philosphy at the University of Köln and Heidelberg.
