HyeConnect founders are famous innovators, devout Armenians, and world-leading professionals in their respective fields Eric Esrailian, Yervant Zorian, Serj Tankian, and Alexis Ohanian. 

Being from the diaspora, all four of them envisioned a platform to create bonds among Armenians worldwide stronger than ever before. The idea came from their own experiences as they had seen the foundation in their lives. They announced their intention to create HyeConnect on October 7th, 2019 during WCIT 2019 in Yerevan. HyeConnect Virtual Portal Foundation is a legally registered foundation in Armenia. Software development of the platform started in 2020 and it will officially be opened to the public in 2021.
