We hear these and countless other empty words in every McKinsey Report. What we believe we do not hear enough is HOW and WHY ? Every country has tried its luck in building a Silicon Valley because that’s HOW the white man in Silicon Valley has done. We believe this is a recipe for disaster. A program without cultural relevance, a structure without international know-how, a fund without a flexible mandate and innovative solutions based on local realities will always fail. At YellowX, we work to understand the cultural relevance, the structural challenges and funding ecosystems to build and operate programs.
WHY? Because we have been raised and were challenged to m ake differences in ambitious organizations. We represent the readers, thinkers, doers in our regions. We represent the diversity a program needs in delivering relevant and high performing programs. We have built programs with know how of the best of the best institutions but we localized our know ledge through the lens of the regions we are operating and we only work with people with international experiences. This is not your typical team. We are not consultants. Unless we go all in with all aspects of the programs we do not offer you solutions because we CARE. We CARE about the startups today as well as their future. We CARE about our partners success and KPI’s as well as their transformational capacity in countries they operate.
