Axel & Boris are explorers. Not the kind who wander through the wild, but the ones who are in constant search for talented individuals across different sectors who possess innovative ideas and can bring beautiful inventions into existence by collaborating. And their business venture Yesss Capital is a manifestation of that mindset.
Based in Berlin, Yesss Capital is an investment company that helps startup ideas from different industries (technology, energy, entertainment, etc.) to come to life. Both of them are serial entrepreneurs (or yessspreneurs – how they would have said it), passionate about bringing change in the world and are self-proclaimed Green Super Heroes.
