The PERFORM Methodology

In 2016 in Aarhus, Denmark, Stoyan Yankov met his future co-author Cristobal Alonso (CEO of Europe’s leading B2B accelerator – Startup Wise Guys). Together, they realised the need for a proven system of tools and strategies designed to help organizations to build strong teams. That’s why the duo created the PERFORM Methodology. After leading numerous workshops and coaching sessions with startups and larger organizations, and visiting 10+ countries on their mission, in 2020 Stoyan and Cristobal published a book: PERFORM: The Unsexy Truth about (Startup) Success. PERFORM is now a recognised system applied successfully by over 300 companies in Europe and beyond.
