The EYES Experience
We are a world-class community of entrepreneurial leaders who value authentic connections, business excellence, and creating something greater than ourselves. Since 2004, we have been organising Global Summits, Global Retreats and Business Forums to touch on every aspect of our entrepreneurial journey in an environment of intimacy and integrity. This year, we celebrate the 15th anniversary of our exceptional community.
AROUND THE WORLD WITH
EYES is brought to life through international events at diverse locations worldwide. Our most recent events took place in the Swiss Alps, Roatán, Berlin, Kuala Lumpur, Tallinn, São Paulo, Madrid and Dubai. Each Global Event revolves around a specific theme. Distinguished speakers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, leading CEOs and international leaders take an active role in shaping the EYES experience during our Global Events.

EYES Global Retreat
The retreat will be characterised by member interaction and introspection, and we will focus on forming even stronger bonds by learning from each other and reflecting together. We will gain insight in ourselves through reflection on what really motivates us and by asking ourselves critical questions. How do we explain our actions and can we point out the authentic desire in ourselves?
"I have built two start ups (developing the 3rd one at the present time) and I have yet to find another forum to share experiences with fellow entrepreneurs. EYES takes me out of my comfort zone. It forces me to address my vulnerabilities and to grow faster as a person and as an entrepreneur.“
“I rarely come across networks as intimate, entrepreneurial and purpose driven as EYES. It was a pleasure to share my experiences with this group of knowledgeable individuals who don’t waste time on platitudes, and who have first hand experience of what building a business at a young age feels like.”
“Meeting great and inspirational people in EYES has helped me become a better entrepreneur and a better person.”
Eugenia Karolyi Popcev
“EYES has helped me to see ‘problems’ from a different perspective. Being an entrepreneur is both a professional and personal challenge, and having like-minded people who truly understand you and give you feedback is the greatest benefit EYES has given me. Aside from being like a family to me.”
“Fresh perspectives, deep relationships, idea exchange and tons of fun. EYES brings an incredibly eclectic mix of entrepreneurs together to achieve of all this.”
“Without EYES Tarek, Alex and I would have never met. Since EYES helped us to match our entrepreneurial talent we have founded 24 companies that employ over 1,000 people. We have received in access of €500 Million in funding and sold several business successfully. We are not done yet and without EYES it would not have happened!”
“EYES is a family of talented trustworthy people that are hungry for success and great to be around.”
“I had the chance to share some of my experiences as an entrepreneur and my startup journey, and was amazed by the high quality group of young entrepreneurs from all around the globe. We could share our points of view and exchange opinions about our markets from different perspectives. The Sao Paulo event was one of those times you’ll always remember.”
Jan Marius Marquardt
'“I think it is absolutely fair to say that without EYES, I wouldn’t be where I am today. EYES has allowed me to grow professionally and personally, building an international network of friends and like-minded entrepreneurs in a format that is completely compatible with my busy schedule as a founder and CEO."
