Year of the X
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.

Year of the dog
In 2018, we will enter the year of the dog, an animal, which personifies strong community bonds, loyalty and protection. The human brain by default is a social brain and the dog will remind us humans how important connection and eco-systems thinking are.
