Bringing Together Talented Individuals
The history of EYES begins in 2003 in London, when four ambitious university students put together an unusual business plan for an organisation with a great mission. Felix came up with the idea to create a platform where the entrepreneurial young people can meet, exchange, and learn from one another. He decided to put together a rough business plan, which he shared with three of his friends – Vivian, Ruben and Yoel. Together they refined this plan and made the first big step towards setting up the society.
They decided to call it The Emerging Young Entrepreneurs Society, or EYES, and established the legal entity of the organisation in Lucerne, Switzerland. The group set a goal to organise the first EYES event in September 2004.
