The concept of HyeConnect was initiated in 2019 when world-leading professionals in their respective fields, innovators and devout Armenians Eric Esrailian, Yervant Zorian, Serj Tankian, and Alexis Ohanian decided to actively pursue their shared idea of actualizing a virtual platform that would connect all Armenians. 

Eric Esrailian: All of us have had experiences where we asked ourselves, “Wouldn’t it be amazing to be able to connect with fellow Armenians from around the world?” or “Wouldn't it be amazing for people to know what the left hand and the right hand are doing across the world and in the Republic of Armenia as well”.
