Our Startup Story

Y Soft Corporation
Karen Lachtanski
Director, Global Communications

Every company has their own startup story. Ours began 11 years after the Velvet Revolution.

Recently the European Business Awards published a book featuring stories about the 2017/2018 companies honored with the Ones To Watch or category winners.

Y Soft’s profile in the book outlines our startup story: the early days, the journey to what has become our flagship product, YSoft SAFEQ, through to our move into 3D print solutions and the establishment of Y Soft Ventures.

Book distribution is extremely limited but not to worry. A digital copy of the Y Soft profile is available.

The profile closes with three learning points from CEO Vaclav Muchna:

  • Think like a startup. Establishing Y Soft Ventures reminds us to act like a startup. “The company was built on the belief that nothing is impossible, working with start-ups helps us keep that spirit and integrate it into our culture.”
  • Never stop innovating. Be intent on this by having actual innovation strategies in place; reward people for displaying innovative approaches in their everyday work
  • Support young talent. “Like everywhere, talent acquisition is a challenge for our business so we now work closely with local universities to develop a pipeline of talent into Y Soft.” Through our University Relations program, you can see how we fulfill this point.

Read our startup story, be inspired and perhaps you too will catch the entrepreneurial bug and will have a startup story of your own. Already have a story, we’d love to hear it.
