Meet Taiz Coe, Founder of Eudunia, set to make history by starting a supranational residency permit
HI TAIZ! THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO CHAT WITH US! CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF, WHO IS TAIZ COE IN YOUR OWN WORDS?
Hello there, thanks for having me. I am Thais Coelho, known as Taiz Coe, a 32 years old entrepreneur, founder of Eudunia.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY THAT BROUGHT YOU TO EUDUNIA
My background is extensive and not traditional, so I believe this is my strongest point. For the past 15 years, I have established and worked on organizations, social & tech startups, worked in the telecommunications industry, and ventured into the entertainment business in five different countries. Overall, I especially dealt with partnerships and business development, always on the technical side, working sharply on individuals and businesses’ growth.
In my private life, I individually assisted many brilliant people in the past years who frequently didn’t meet the criteria to get a visa or o pursue their business in a foreign land. I saw talents wither and business ideas dissolved due to bureaucratic limitations that consequently impacted them financially.
I highly believe that not everyone will prosper in their lives in the same place or country they were born. It is evident that are countries where a particular business will boost growth faster than others. I highly respect borders and Immigration offices; criteria exist for a faster and dynamic process to accommodate the maximum people according to a country regulation.
However, there is still a place for improvement; it is impossible that everyone fits unflexible immigration criteria. Foreigners are often labeled in categories. Foreign talents and companies are especially things that don’t belong in categories, they need place and flexibility to grow.
Both private and professional endeavors, then, brought me to Eudunia. My goal with Eudunia is to broaden people’s and companies’ possibilities to prosper in the least bureaucratic manner.
CAN YOU TELL US WHAT IS EUDUNIA AND HOW YOU CAME UP WITH THIS NAME?
Eudunia is an international pass that allows location-dependent entrepreneurs, academics, and professionals residency in different countries worldwide. With Eudunia, people will have their academic and professional track in hands, being able to use them in different places purposefully. It is a nonprofit and for-profit organization. The nonprofit Eudunia will allow world access to brilliant and community-active individuals from developing countries. The name Eudunia originates from Eu (prefix for good, trust, good cause) and Dunia (World, Earth).
DID YOU START THE VENTURE ALONE?
Yes, but not without the support of team compound of international law and human rights lawyer, and a Cybersecurity consultant to assist me in the most complex policies, projections, and scalability.
LASTLY, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO TELL OR SUGGEST BUDDING ENTREPRENEURS?
Time flies. Do not wait so long to put into practice your idea.
Do not stick to a well-paid job if you have an optimistic business idea in your head. You will end up living a series of burnouts and not working with a purpose. Is this really worth it? Food for thought.
