  • We are all aware how to flow with the wind when the time is by your side, but the real test of entrepreneurship comes when you face difficult and contrary market conditions. The addition of modules on how to be Optimistic and managing tough situations  in the Excelrate program by YoStartups has helped the future Thai entrepreneurs to be better equipped in dealing with the challenges of entrepreneurship.

  • “Yostartups have added greatly to Bahrain’s Startup ecosystem. Their workshops in partnership with CH9 have proved to be of tremendous value to our startups. Challenging them to ask the hard questions at the appropriate time. Validation is an important step in the process of starting a new venture and Yostartup’s excels at this aspect. Given their plans we expect Yostartups to also contribute in other ways to our StartupBahrain initiative going forward”
