Secret of Success – Benjamin Suchar (Yoopies)

Benjamin Suchar - Yoopies

Yoopies started because I have 3 sisters, 2 of whom are mothers. When I realised that their only choice to find a babysitter was either to rely on poorly written classified ads in supermarkets or third party agencies that requested high fees, I saw a great opportunity to create an online childcare platform that parents could trust. So Yoopies is building a future for itself (helped by the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme) by providing that trust to its customers by leveraging the power of online social media
recommendations.

Personally, I’d like to see a European Visa for Entrepreneurship to allow anyone to create a company in the EU; a single legal form for European companies; and a European incubator programme.

“Entrepreneurs are useful to society because we change the world! We improve the everyday life of millions of people.”
