About Yeobi

Our story

What a headache! Living in France as a newcomer is not an easy thing. In fact, for the past 10 years, the founders of Yeobi have met and worked with newcomers from all over the world who very often felt helpless, not to say desperate, when faced with the difficulties of life as a foreigner in France. 

This reality concerns all newcomers ! Whether you came to work, study, or join a family member, or flee persecution, fitting in in France can be especially challenging when you don’t speak the language, have no local social network, and don’t know they way things work. 

One of the things that we realized was that there were no efficient solutions to solve that problem. The problem was not the lack of information. In the age of internet and social networks information is plentiful. The problem is the quality of the information and the accessibility of information. Today newcomers have the choice between accessible low quality information, or unaccessible quality information and we wanted to solve that problem through social and technological innovations. Our goal  has never been to replace the existing information system but rather to improve them. 

The Yeobi team is currently based and operating in France in two cities: Paris and Montpellier. 

What we do

Because our objective is to reach as many newcomers as possible we have developed 2 main axes of actions to improve access to information and services amongst newcomers!
