Past and future
March 2008, Yvan sends a call-out on the alumni newsletters of French business schools, looking for a travel and entrepreneurship lover. Eric responds, the adventure begins! In June 2009, the first sales are celebrated with Champagne. The first round of fundraising takes place in February 2011, helping the team to expand internationally. In 2019, Evaneos passes the 500,000 travelers mark, with 22 nationalities in-house. The 2020 global health crisis hits the industry hard, leading to a Job-Saving Plan in November. One year later, the first “Evaneos Days” are held. Having 25% of full remote workers, these two days per month gathering all Evaneossians at la Voyagerie are really key!

Evaneos values have been deeply part of their DNA since the beginning and embodied by all Evaneossians for 13 years. They have lived through the scale and through the months of crisis. After these ups and downs, Evaneossians are clear on their strengths and the biases that lie behind each one. Looking with humility at these risks and enthusiasm at these strengths allows them to be bolder and more powerful for today and tomorrow.
