“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 Heitmann, CEO of Best Kiteboarding. “We are stoked to bring the business – and kitesurf events to Europe.”
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* relates to kitesurfing business events that have already taken place in USA.
The Founders Kite Club has been initiated by several entrepreneurs at the end of 2012 and has been founded by Sebastian Heitmann and Christoph Jost in February 2013. Co-Founders are Florian Behn and Florian Wilken.
As the CEO of Best Kiteboarding, Sebastian contributes the FKC with his understanding of the kite market and as a German internet entrepreneur, founder and investor Christoph Jost helps to round things out. The vowed goal is to help to establish the sport of kitesurfing as the new “golf” for energetic entrepreneurial personalities.
