HORASIS – A Global platform for excellence

HORASIS – A Global platform for excellence

There was no reason for Frank Jurgen Richter to become an entrepreneur. He is a citizen of the one of the richest countries in the globe. As a Swiss citizen, he is entitled to all the benefits that come with a generous, social security system. There was need for him to take a punt and create a business entity which was untested and came with a lot of risks.

Yet, the bug of entrepreneurship convinced him to create a global platform for businessmen, innovators and thinkers to come together for an exchange of ideas and take steps for the larger, social good.

Frank cut his teeth with a stint at the World Economic Forum at Davos and he dreamt of the day when he would have his own platform with new innovative ideas. As luck would have it, he was approached by the Chinese Government to create a platform for Chinese entrepreneurs. He got into that task and this paved the way for his dream project for a global platform.

Frank approached captains of the industry, well known family business owners of Europe, business and tech magnates from Asia, Latin America and Africa and even Nobel laureates and Horasis as an entity was born. It has been going from strength to strength ever since its inception. Today, the platform has many diversified chapters catering to diversified needs.

Horasis deals with top family business owners and in that capacity, Frank brings together both the patriarchs and the business inheritors to evolve understanding and take their businesses to the next level. Business legacy is also an integral part of the discussions. The role of family values is highlighted in these sessions to reduce friction and evolve a road map for the family business.

Horasis is also going big on education and under the aegis of ‘Young Visionaries’ new initiatives in the field of education have been undertaken by the platform. Horasis has tied up with business schools in Spain and many universities in that country encourage young students to attend Horasis sessions aimed towards betterment of education and developing student skill sets.

In a larger sense, very much like Thomas Friedman’s thesis that the world is flat, Horasis, focuses on globalisation of business and education and the attendant challenges, risks and rewards that come from pursuing this endeavour.
