At Y Soft Ventures, We've Got a Technology Focus

Shaping the Future & Pioneering Innovation

Here's how Y Soft Ventures builds a commitment to transformative technologies, where innovative solutions redefine corporate efficiency and quality of life.

Industry 4.0

Some call it Industry 4.0, while others call it Smart Factory or Industrial Internet of Things. What we are looking for are solutions that disrupt the current approach to manufacturing and adjacent processes while creating cost and efficiency-related value.

Smart Office

When we talk about Smart Office solutions, we mean all technologies, hardware, or software, that build intelligent workplaces and allow employees to do their best work, boosting not only their productivity but also engagement and satisfaction.

Retail 2.0

Retail is an ever-changing industry shaped by many trends and challenges. While there are many approaches to solving problems in this area, we are particularly curious about solutions that help retailers run more efficiently and provide their customers with better value.

Smart City

Although there are many aspects of Smart Cities, we are mainly interested in how new technologies can provide sustainable solutions to infrastructure problems and improve the quality of life for urban citizens.

Cyber Security

Our focus on Cyber Security is deeply linked to IoT development. We seek complex solutions that respond to current virtual threats as well as emerging challenges from the increasing penetration of IoT networks and devices.

Big Data & Analytics

As the advancement of new technologies leads to inconceivable amounts of data, we see enormous challenges—and opportunities—in data. Solutions that help businesses efficiently process their data and fully leverage its value will likely pique our interest.

Augmented & Virtual Reality

In augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR), we are keen on B2B-oriented solutions that take a different angle on challenges brought by Smart Office, Smart Factory, or Retail 2.0 trends. Since B2C doesn't float our boat, we are not looking for consumer-facing AR/VR applications.

Employee Equity Handbook

The Employee Equity Handbook was developed by the Y Soft Ventures team as a guide for startup entrepreneurs about employee shares in the Czech Republic.

It answers questions such as, "Why should I start an employee equity program? How should it be implemented? How can I talk about it with my colleagues?" While it was first created for the startups within our portfolio, we're making it available to anyone looking for an effective tool to attract, retain, and motivate their employees.

The handbook is intended for Czech readers, as it maps the Czech legal and tax frameworks. Therefore, it is available only in the Czech language.

You can download the latest edition of the handbook here. It reflects the changes in tax legislation effective from 2024 and incorporates experience gained since the first version was published.
