Kiteboarding is the new golf; a way for dynamic entrepreneurs who embody the work hard, play hard mentality to network and exchange ideas. A surfer uses a kite to jump off a wave and soar through the sky before gliding back down to the water. Inovum recently joined the Founders Kite Club, which hosts networking events where members can ride waves and meet fellow entrepreneurs in a “business on the beach” atmosphere. The club encourages members to get out of their comfort zone and push themselves to the limits, both out on the water and in their professional careers.
When members aren’t kiteboarding, they are meeting with other entrepreneurs to exchange business ideas, discuss the latest in tech, and get inspired with fresh ideas that they can bring back to their own companies. Other highlights of the event include keynote speakers and mastermind sessions, where revolutionary ideas and groundbreaking technology can be discussed freely amongst experienced business leaders. The latest Founders Kite Club event in Sylt was sponsored by Audi, and each member was given an RS6 to cruise around the island in style.
Inovum participated in the club’s event on the island of Sylt, also known as the pearl of Germany. The island is known for its beautiful beaches, thatched-roof houses, and incredible dune landscape. Other Founders Kite Club destinations in 2016 have included Cape Town, South Africa and Tel Aviv, Israel. The next and final event in 2016 will be held October 6-9 in Tarifa, a small town on the southern coast of Spain and Europe’s, known worldwide for excellent wind conditions. The events are held exclusively for founders, entrepreneurs, investors, and to receive an invitation you must apply on the Founders Kite Club website.
If the “business in boardshorts” style of networking sounds appealing then you are strongly encouraged to apply. After a weekend out on the water you are guaranteed to come back to your business rejuvenated and inspired, with powerful business alliances that can push your company to the next level. Inovum is thrilled to be part of the Founders Kite Club and we hope to see you at future events to network, exchange ideas, and of course do some first-class kiteboarding.
