Yusuf was very self-motivated and precise at a very young age. He wanted to do something in the tech industry.
His hometown is Zurich, where he started his working experience as a consultant and intern in the IT industry and was never worn out from challenges; due to his undivided focus on his goal, he learned to manage work and study balance. After graduating from college, Yusuf increased his operational exposure and experience by dealing with clients from Dubai, London, and Zurich by working in a financial advisory company.
Encouraged and experienced now, He widened his grip on business development by selling his company after eight months which was established in 2015. His interest in technology and learning always had him going and growing.
Speaking of his actual journey, it all started at the age of 20, when for an investor meeting, he flew to India, with only 200 Euros. On achieving the investment, after one year, he sold the company. This exit led him to Draper University, in Silicon Valley, for his education.
He invested the capital he achieved from business; this was the turning point Yousuf was looking for, as he learned from the famous American venture capitalist, Tim Draper, and mastering his knowledge in angel marketing and entrepreneurship.
During his three-month stay in San Francisco, encouraged and fascinated by the network, he started angel investing in three different companies. One of the companies having a value of three hundred and fifty million dollars now.
Then he moved to Zurich, where he developed his forwarding consultancy, inqube GmbH, providing tech solutions, meeting marketing needs for startups, and investment consulting. He became a partner of El Group International while being an advisor for various companies.
He became the EMEA head after moving to Dubai. After five years in Dubai, driven by excitement, he founded techdistrict.com along with his two partners.
Moving to Turkey for expanding the business, He also stayed the EL GROUP board member. After five years in that business, he did his second successful exit after selling his shares to his partner.
