Together with Kristin Boese, Youri Zoon and Lewis Crathern the FoundersKiteClub kickoff event will take
place from 23rd-26th of May in El Gouna (Egypt). Christoph Jost reveals that there are already top
entrepreneurs on the participation list.

“Kitesurfing bonds a certain type of people: entrepreneurial, successful, those willing to take a risk, are
adventurous and at the same time have a relaxed and open minded attitude to life, which proves to be
an explosive mix of characters," positively admit both of the FKC founders Christoph Jost and Sebastian

Europe."

The participation is per invite only. Applications can be sent via www.facebook.com/founderskiteclub or

already been generated in market value which forbes magazine*
