YourStory is now in Germany. With YourStory Germany, we will bring you the narrative of the startup ecosystem in Germany and also act as a bridge between entrepreneurs in India and Germany.
After running successfully in India for the past nine years, we believe it's time to spread the magic we have witnessed through stories of entrepreneurs and doers across the world. What better place to spread our wings than Germany, the land of entrepreneurship, technology, and great stories.
We believe it is stories that connect us. And stories have the power to transform, transcend boundaries, and truly create magic.
When I started YourStory in 2008, I had only one mission, to tell stories that matter, and to make stories matter, especially of people who lacked resources but had a strong will to change their own world and the world around them.
I feel pride and am humbled every day that for the last nine years we have told such stories and helped shape the startup, and more importantly, the socio-cultural narrative of young India. We told startups matter way before our immediate world was able to recognise it.
We believe that in the new world, boundaries will matter less and collaboration will matter more. With this aim in our hearts, we launch YourStory Germany. I am lucky to find a collaborator and partner in Maren Lesche, an incredible young woman who has the same vision of a united, more collaborative, and more impactful world. (I would like to thank Angela de Giacomo for introducing me to Maren).
With YourStory Germany, we will bring you the narrative of the startup ecosystem in Germany and also act as a bridge between entrepreneurs in India and Germany.
We look forward to your love and support (which you have given us so freely) always. I believe that's a gift that has made us come so far and be so strong.
To YourStory Germany. To incredible stories and great outcomes for all.
