Just before I started my Masters at the London School of Economics, I co-founded Sandbox Network with four friends in Zurich, with the aim to unite the most talented young achievers below the age of 30 around the globe. It was an incredibly ambitious but also worthwhile vision to aspire to. Most people we have talked to though, thought we were crazy and it would never succeed. How could a couple of 24 year old guys from Switzerland with little experience and money realise such ambitious vision? Today, Sandbox unites exactly these talents in more than 50 countries at 100s of events a year across the globe.
