FoundersKiteClub (FKC) hosts several kitesurfing, community and entrepreneurship events supported
by BEST KITEBOARDING at premium kitesurfing venues. Entrepreneurs, investors and innovators meet
like-minded people for networking and improving their kiting skills by learning from the best athletes out

kitesurfing.

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
directly on their webpage www.founderskiteclub.com.

The connections which are made in strong winds also can last in business life. Over 7 billion dollars have
already been generated in market value which forbes magazine*
