We are a community of innovators and diverse thinkers who are willing to take risks in order to make an impact on the world. Our core values are diversity and intimacy. Markus the founder of YOTX, lived in Sydney, San Francisco, Barcelona and Munich. Throughout his travels he came to the realization that no matter where we are, we put barriers up, mask our fears and embody politics. Overcoming stigma and bringing the elephants on the table has become the mission of the company.
Everything is changing: our companies are becoming more agile and responsive. Our education system needs to foster emotional intelligence, digital competency and project-based learning. And our society requires us to accept diversity and intimacy and become more community-focussed. Our aim is to help move our society to the next level with more integrated mindsets and stronger ties to the community.
We chose the Chinese horoscope because it reflects the ever-changing nature of our world. Nothing is constant, everything flows! Each animal in the horoscope has its unique character set and so the name of our festival changes every year in accordance with the current Chinese new year. We started with the Year of the Goat which was all about overcoming our goat-like stubbornness and resistance. Then came the monkey, a playful animal which likes to experiment. This year marks the rooster, an animal which displays tremendous courage and does not take no for an answer. And in 2018, we will enter the year of the dog, which personifies strong community bonds, loyalty and protection.
