The Eureka Moment
We all have our Eureka Moments. YNOS originated from one such. Without a doubt, the Indian Start-up and venture industry has grown significantly in the last few years. Start-ups founders need a lot of help in the initial days of the venture in the fund raising process. With limited interest from the investment bankers for sub $250K rounds, what can we do to help the early stage entrepreneur? That was the question we wanted to address. We are group of people who have been researching and working on the Indian venture industry for close to a decade. Our Eureka moment was when we decided to leverage our combined expertise and deploy technology and computational tools to enhance the understanding of the start-up landscape and increase the efficiency of fund raising process for start-up founders and early stage ventures.
Begin with the Beginning.
It is the best of the times. It can also be the worst of times. It also depends on which side of the line one is. While the start-up ecosystem has been extremely conducive, it has also become complex. The objective of YNOS is to help the start-up founders to navigate the terrain in the early stages of their venture lifecycle.

Identify the Right Investor.
It is common for investors to claim that we have looked at 1000 deals, but funded only 10 of them. Now we ask of the entrepreneur: Do you want to be a part of the 1000? Or do you want to be a part of the 10? Each and every meeting with a potential investor takes a lot of time and energy. More importantly, as an entrepreneur you want to be focusing on developing the business. Rather than be spending a lot of time meeting potential investors. The YNOS platform precisely helps you to do that. Our proprietary tools sift through thousands of deals and investors to identify investors who would be a closer match to your venture. Saves time, effort, and disappointments and increases your chances of getting funded. Remember, investors don’t play dice.
