"Kairos transcends [international] boundaries because in our independent world there are no borders when it comes to the pressing issues that we all face"

"Some of the most influential leaders, individuals and corporations alike, are looking to Kairos fellows for a fresh perspective on how to tackle the next generation of global problems"

Founder, Inspire 925
Being a Kairos Fellow accelerated my entrepreneurial ambitions at a young age. The Kairos Society Global Summit was a fast-track immersion into a community of exceptional peers from around the world - young innovators, entrepreneurs and changemakers - who didn’t just talk about how they were going to change the world, they were already doing it with their inventions, startups and community organizations. Thanks to Kairos I gained access to invaluable industry mentors who challenged me to think bigger and - looking back - set me on track to start my own company out of university.
The Kairos Society is a global community of top students and global leaders who aim to solve the world’s greatest challenges. Kairos is supported by international mentors like Peter Diamandis, Richard Branson, Bill Gates and Bill Clinton.
One of the international top-level events mentioned is the Kairos Global Summit. Every year Kairos fellows from all around the world gather at the Kairos Global Summit, where influential CEOs, mentors, startups and young entrepreneurs share their vision of the future and start collaborations. During the Kairos Global Summit the K50 is announced.
The K50 is a list of the 50 most promising companies worldwide, with a (co-)founder under the age of 26 years, adressing a global challenge.
Take a look and enjoy!
