The Thousand Network Zurich hub is a group of young people (mostly between 23-33) who at an early age became company founders, cartoonists, professional musicians, authors, policy makers, artists, restaurant owners, scientists…people who have taken the road less travelled, as Robert Frost would say.
At Thousand Network Zurich we bring together these young achievers based in the Greater Zurich Area to learn from and with each other, to exchange ideas and support each other throughout the highs and lows that come with this adventurous journey we call life. We help each other grow, undertake trips together, and build friendships along the way.
Above all else, it is these friendships that are at the heart of Thousand. Because our members, are ultimately a group of friends. Friends who are bound together by curiosity and creativity, and a value system that emphasizes kindness and integrity as much as ambition, accomplishment and great success.
Based in the economic center of Switzerland, the Zurich hub is one of two in Switzerland with the other being in the French-speaking Léman region. Being in the heart of Europe means that our members frequently interact with other hubs. Be it people visiting Zurich – or Zurich members attending retreats organized by other hubs.
We hold a monthly dinner and a monthly brunch to stay in touch, but many of us also meet on other occasions.
