YTES is a consulting agency specialized in European funding. YTES was founded in February 2005 in Lille, close to Brussels, by Alexandra Debaisieux. In 2007, a second office was opened in Strasbourg. Since 2014, YTES also operates in the Indian Ocean thanks to our regional representation in La Réunion.
YTES comes from the Finnish word « yhteys » which means “link”. For us, developing a European project and receiving funding for its realization means creating links and synergies between different European actors of all kinds in order to support their complementarity and their capacity to work together.
Since 2011, we also advise charities for the development of corporate fundraising strategies.
