Joining Y-center's program was one of the turning points in my life.In India, the relationship of a teacher and student is revered for a lifetime. The coaches at Ycenter live by that philosophy. I say that because even though the course ended in a month, whenever I have reached out to them for guidance in my startup journey, they have always been a great source of mentoring and motivation. More power to Team Ycenter!

The greatest thing is that Ycenter programs are extremely personalized to suit each start up individually, and there are several principles taught, which are applicable to all. In a few weeks, we built relationships which have added immense value and opened great opportunities.  Ycenter provided us with a lot of great exposure and helped us build a strong foundation for our company.

As it comes from the name we were trained to focus on "why" behind everything. This changed the way I started looking at the world. Stories, examples, and people from all around the globe were part of the program and it helped to understand the concepts better. I learned more in those 6 weeks of Ycenter's program than throughout my 4 years of engineering. To sum it up, it was a life changing experience.
