Partnerships for purposeful solutions

YinC is encouraging and helping small to medium sized South African businesses find international trade related opportunities.

About Us

Yin Connect enables purpose driven co-operations. Through globalization, vast opportunities lie for leaders in and beyond our own borders and we are here to  bridge that connection.

Y in Connect was founded by Yvonne Iyer. Iyer’s previous experience as the KwaZulu Natal regional manager for the Southern-African German Chamber of Commerce(SAGCC) led her to connect businesses and regional governmental partnerships between Germany and Southern Africa. During her 6 years at the SAGCC, Iyer initiated and managed inbound and outbound delegations to and from Germany together with hosting key strategic engagements for the province.

Another cap worn by YIN connect founder is that she is the South African representative for Senior Experten Services (SES). SES is the leading German organization for voluntary mentoring assignments carried out by retired German experts. SES brings across experienced, professional, and technical German experts for skills and knowledge development globally. In the past two years, Iyer has successfully placed just over 25 German mentors in companies in South Africa, as well as in Mauritius. This breaks the record held in SES for South African assignments since 1983, for the highest number of assignments completed in the shortest space of time.
