EYES is a global society for young and emerging entrepreneurs. In order to join EYES you must meet the following criteria:
Our members are typically traditional business entrepreneurs, family entrepreneurs or high impact social entrepreneurs.
In order to apply to join EYES you need to get sponsored by one of our members. If you don't have a sponsor we will connect you with our members to help you find a sponsor.
Our Membership Committee then reviews your application and you will have a range of short 1-to-1 interview sessions with a few of our members to get an initial feel for each other and see if there is a fit.
Following a positive decision of the Membership Committee that interviewed you, you will join EYES as a Prospective Guest Member. You will then have a period of one year to attend your first EYES event. During the event you will be evaluated, and within a week you will be notified as to whether Guest Membership has been granted.
After your first event our members will evaluate if you are a good match for our society and values. This determines whether you will be granted Guest Membership for a period of 12 months during which you are invited to participate in all regular EYES activities and events.
The final and most honorable step during the EYES journey is becoming a Full Member. The criteria for this are tough and you will be continuously evaluated and coached during your time as Guest Member to advance to this final stage.
Full Members that have passed the age of 40 automatically transition to become Alumni Members but remain invited to participate and will happily support all EYES members with their wisdom.
