CrowdEyes was founded December 2014 by Jann Kallehauge.

The Founding Team
The CrowdCore consists of Jann Kallehauge (Management), Rene Bang Hansen (Marketing), Flemming Petersen (Technology), Asger Rønnow (Sales).
The story of CrowdEyes
A late summer evening, CrowdEyes’ founder Jann Kallehauge was on his way home from work on his bike. In front of him, was another man on his bike with the same mission. Suddenly something fell out of the backpack of the man in front of Jann. It was a set of keys. The man with the backpack continued biking uninterrupted, without having noticed his loss. Jann rushed to pick up the keys and tried as hard as he could, to catch up with the man with the backpack. But with no success. There Jann was, with a set of keys and no owner. He waited for a while, but the man with the backpack didn’t return.
According to Danish law, it is compulsory to hand in anything of value to the authorities, if you are not yourself able to reach the rightful owner. And so, Jann of course did. But Jann was left with the question; Did the man ever get his keys back?
After some research, Jann found out that every seventh minute a bike is stolen in Denmark. That more than 8 people are involved in a traffic accident every day, and that hundreds of dogs, cats and other pets are missing. Jann thought that it was time for a change, and the idea to make loss a thing of the past was born. He wanted to help people – and make it easy for people to help one another.
