Join us for an epic, highly interactive and productive business networking event in a relaxed, non-pressure environment overlooking the beautiful Robson & Bute area. We had 118 people attended physically in July and 105 people attended in June, which was cross promoted by 5+ other awesome JV groups. If you want amazing great value, then check out this event, look at the past pictures and/or ask the past attendees.
We are determined to make this better than the 'typical boring/lame networking over some beers and cheap snacks' event and want everyone to be closer to their business goals even if you are introverted and are not comfortable in large crowd settings. All of us have been to these meetups where they throw you in a room and let you be, so only the most extroverted get some results while the rest go home empty handed. We want to turn that model upside down with our unique facilitated networking activities, so that everyone can leave with more better quality contacts to follow up with.
The evening will be full of amazing Startupers, entrepreneurs and traditional business people who wants some fresh ideas, mingling and icebreakers' activities. There will be an awesome mix of people from all over the lower mainland. The last few events were so popular, the extra overflow had went out to the patio and hung out at the bar for quieter talks with their new contacts. Everyone we asked for feedback from told us they received too many business cards to follow up with, so is that good or bad?
You're welcome to join us earlier from 5-6 pm for their Happy Hours Specials of food and drinks before the actual event starts later. If you can't come earlier, then no problem because the Happy Hours Specials are extended until 9 pm for our group only. How to find us? We will be at the private room with a beautiful view of Robson St. and/or ask for Nathan from YVR StartUps at the front desk. Everyone is welcome!
Share your ideas or help others to make their ideas a reality. Feel free to share any marketing and growth challenges your business is experiencing and provide support to one another. Why? The Karma God will compensate you for your kindness and wisdom.
CROWD SOURCING ACTIVITY: Everyone has a need or an itch that they can't seem to scratch for their own business. The law of probability states that the answer to your need is somewhere in the room or someone knows someone else who can be a solution or offer options, likewise you may be the solution/choice to someone's need. At YVR Startups, we believe in thinking outside the box to help everyone get connected with solutions or options.
