1968 - A man was born who turned adversity into triumph
"Welcome to my world, where passion, tenacity and relentless pursuit of dreams come together to create something extraordinary. My name is Marek Veselý and I am excited to share my story with you. In August 1970 I celebrated my second birthday. Notice the mysterious hand gesture that accompanies me to this day."
2007 - The largest stainless steel Oryx statues
From organizing cultural events around the world to founding the Thalia Awards, Summer Shakespeare Festivals and the Famous Villas book series to installing the world's largest stainless steel Oryx sculptures in Doha, Qatar. I founded the Prague Gallery of Czech Glass and the Stanislav Libenský Prize and put my heart and soul into this enterprise - I lived my dreams. And already in 2007, when I finished my MBA studies at Paris Lodron University in Salzburg and Colombia College in Chicago, I found inspiration for my next big project.
2019 - Sticks under your feet
But as it happens in life, the year 2019 and some of my own decisions threw sticks under my feet. The company went bankrupt, I went through a divorce and felt like all my hard work was wasted. However, I refused to give up. Instead, I channeled my energy and creativity into developing and manufacturing the premium gfBar energy bar. A product to give people the energy they need to move their lives forward. At the height of the covid-19 pandemic, I delivered 2,000 gfBars to hospitals, determined to make a positive impact on the world.
2023 - gfBar 2 - premium energy bar
And now, in 2023, I am proud to announce the launch of gfBar 2, available in four different versions - ORIGINAL, COCOA, FILMMAKER and PILOT. But that's not all. I have other new products in development that fuel my passion to create something truly special. Through life's ups and downs, I've learned that with perseverance and a relentless pursuit of your dreams, anything is possible. I invite you to join me on this journey, experience the full range of emotions - joy, pain and hope, and witness how triumph can emerge from adversity. Together we can make a positive impact on the world and fulfill one dream after another.
